Hit and Run
Someone's husband of nearly 30 years;
met an untimely end staring into headlights.
He didn't deserve to die at a speeding car's mercy.
Even if he'd been more visible,
it still might not have stopped.
The driver that blew through the crosswalk
didn't give the man a second thought.
Hit and runs are a tragedy,
but they happen every day.
As long as people are so rushed;
neither car nor man look both ways.
The family doesn't know who killed him,
and they probably never will;
but that doesn't mean they'll stop searching.
Justice for the hit and run killer,
and the victim gone too soon.
