My Friend

Please don't second guess
this broken heart of mine
by saying I'll get over it
in God's almighty time.

Suggest, I ask you not
my "compassion" wasn't there,
for others who'll experience this -
as it just isn't fair!

Don't tell me to be happy,
I've other kids to love,
as they will not replace,
my angel up above.

And please don't tell me
this is for the best,
that God is only taunting me,
and this is just a test.

This is how God does it,
my son was just his "pick".
He's helping our society,
by weeding out the sick.

Or, it's nature's way of saying
it's now my time to quit
I shouldn't have another
I'm dying ... bit, by bit.

Please, don't try to find a blame,
be it drugs or maybe drink,
I would never do this!
How could you even think?

We're not looking for,
attention or some fame.
God forbid, YOU wear these shoes,
they'd fit you much the same.

Don't think you have the answers.
Be thankful, you don't know!
Where my life has gone to
... you don't want to go!

So please don't try to help me,
figure out the "why's",
of something so repulsive
as when a child dies!

Let there be no limit,
no time my pain should end.
Let me talk, and let me cry,
just be here as my friend.

If I don't care myself,
let me know you do.
When my life is often hopeless,
just lend a hug or two.

And please don't forget him,
my baby's life was true.
Above all else, remember him ...
It's the greatest gift from you!
