This is my baby Joel, and this is the last picture I have with me & him together. He was taken by someone else… God. Yesterday March 11th, 2011, Joel was taking me too school. He was driving and I was riding shot gun. We were at an intersection, waiting for the light too turn green. When it did, out of no-where a guy T-Boned our car , on the driver’s/Joel’s side. The impact fractured Joel’s left leg, crushed 2 ribs, a concussion, and broke his neck. He had blood all over his face. The impact stunned the hell out of me, with pain in my lower back,neck, and chest. All I worried about was Joel, he was screaming in pain. It was hard too see him sitting in his own blood, crying for help. And I couldn’t move, it was too painful & I didn’t have enough strength. I can only reach over and hold tight too his right hand, and I felt the blood on his palm. He was losing a lot of blood & I was becoming numb in my back. When the medics came, they immediately took us too the hospital. They arrested the other driver for wreck-less driving.
After X-Rays, drugs, and tests, I fell asleep. Within 20 mins after all the drugs they gave me. Woken up by a nurse, telling me the worst news possible.
” Honey, I want too tell you, Joel he’s gone,we tried too bring him back, but the amount of blood loss.. was just no use.” Each word hit me x10 as much as the actual accident. I wanted too punch her, for how … blunt she was. My baby is gone, forever and it only took 3 seconds too take away 3 years.
He was my whole world. He meant everything too me. Joel was my neighbor, how great that was. Knowing if I didn’t feel safe my protector wasn’t too far away. Every morning he would sing me ” Neighbors Know My Name”, and it would always make me smile. He was the only boy my parents ever approved of, Joel was my best - friend. We played video games, basketball, and hide n’ go seek. That was my favorite. But now … all of that is just a memory, and he is too. I miss him soo much. He was so good too me, his sisters, his parents, and his friends. And every night at 11:11 he would text me ” All of my wishes came true baby, I love you.” And now , I just sit here looking out my window every 10 mins. too see maybe he will pull up too the drive way. And wait for my phone too buzz with his name on it. I can still hear his voice in my head. Every time I think about him, I slowly break too pieces.
I miss you baby, we will meet again.
Readers please watch the road when you’re driving & always wear a seat belt.
