Please Tell Me

Now I am so very confused. I feel like I have been abused.

Are you being honest with me, or are you only wanting the key?

I can’t tell what you want anymore, but as you see, it’s my heart that you tore.

Why do you do this? Will you really be there? Do you truly love me, or don’t you even care?


I am the one you’ve used so much with all your charm and gentle touch.

Is it true love that you claim, or have you just been playing a game?

I wish you would be honest. I wish I could tell. How can I know when you always hide behind that veil?

Are you being truthful, or is it a lie? If that’s all it is; then, I’ll be saying goodbye.


In my heart, you will always live, but I have so much more love to give.

So, if you’re leaving, please quickly do say; I don’t want to go on hurting this way.

There is just one more thing I want to say to you, but it scares me, are you feeling this way, too?

I wanted to express how deep my love is for you. I just wanted to tell you before we were through.

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?
