Why her, Lord?

     Why her, Lord?


She had her whole life ahead of her

She had so much to give

     Why her, God?


We all ask why? now that she’s gone

But now it is too late. We cannot right the wrong.

My heart is broken. I feel as if she was one of my very own.

But remember, God only gives them to us on a loan.

He is in control. He is still reigning from His throne.

He may be calling you to recognize what you have sown.

We all wish she could come back and be with us to bond.

But time has passed, a new day has dawned.

     Why her, Lord?


Your purpose for her is so much more.

Your sovereignty has already been shown.

     Why her, God?

She Wonders

He walks down the path consumed by his thoughts;

   He walks right past her without a even a word.

      He goes about his business never looking in her eyes;

         With his desires satisfied, he walks away without even a goodbye.


…She wonders…


She watches him leave, wondering what she did wrong;

   She watches as he turns the corner, leaving her alone.

      She tries to understand his moody and mysterious news;

         With her mind abused, she stands there dazed and confused.


…She wonders…


Tomorrow they are laughing, walking arm in arm down the path.

   Not a thought of yesterday is mentioned or even alluded to.

      Still she wonders if it’s true. Still she wonders, watching his every move.

         He keeps traveling this sad journey, not concerned if she’s through.


…She wonders…


They go about their days, talking here and there.

   Today, they converse endlessly, tomorrow not even a sound.

      She continually wonders and dreams that someday they will be

         United in true love and through a holy matrimony.


…She wonders…
