Poetry Corner: A Life Lost

January 25, 2012 

So much sadness,

So much pain,

God, why does it that when it rains,

It pours?


So young,

So full of life,

God, what makes so such strife,

That can cause a loss of life?


So much sadness,

So much pain,

God, what happened to the gladness,

God, don’t let it happen to us again.


Why God, why?

How can I say goodbye?

How come the world is shades of gray?

What happened to his life of child’s play?


Please God, let it get better,

Please send our love his way,

Please let him know that we care,

Please listen to this prayer.


So much sadness,

So much pain,

Too much rain

And cloudy days.
