We all ask why at times, and this poem illustrates this question.

The church is dark and empty

She bows her head and begins to pray

Father, she prays aloud and with fury

Why did my child have to die she begins to say

Why oh why did my child have to die today?

I loved him, I cherished him, he was my baby you see

Why did he have to die, Father, please tell me!

Father I hear nothing from you on this issue today

I need to know that you are listening as I pray

Give me an answer to this one request

Give me an answer and I will do my best

To serve you and love you with all of my might

Father this is one thing I need to know

Why was my child taken out of my sight?

Why was he taken on Christmas day

Why did he die I ask you why, I pray

The day turns into night for me this year.

My child took a piece of me with him I fear

I hear my Father then whisper in my ear

He died because I needed him here

Heaven is a place for perfect happiness he says

There is no pain or dying there

Only perfect peace and this I wear

Trust in me in all things and know this well

He is safe in my arms and this is where he will dwell

Losing a child has to me one of the most heartbreaking horrors in life. I've never lost a child, and God willing I won't. I can't imagine how I would feel.

Many blessings,

It's never easy when a child dies before a parent, especially before he's even begun to live! Heartbreaking write, I pray this is fiction!

Loosing a child is one of the most difficult and painful things that a parent can go through.You feel as if a part of you as died inside of your soul and you can't let it go.I'm not a parent and if my son or daughter passed away,then I really wouldn't know what to do with myself.God is indeed here for all of us 1,000% and I'm sure her son is in a better place as he should be.This is a very good poem even though the tone was sad.Take good care of yourself
