Why did God create a life
That wasn’t meant to be
Why did He give eyes
If they were never meant to see
Why did He put breath in you
Then take that breath away
Why give you to me
If you were never meant to stay
Why show someone happiness
And how it feels to smile
And fill their hearts with hope
If it can only last a while
Why did God create the sun
When all it does is rain
How am I supposed to laugh
When all I feel is pain
Why let people dream
Knowing their dreams will not come true
Why should I find someone else
When all I want is you
Why say there’s a Heaven
When it doesn’t help to pray
Why is there tomorrow
When I long for yesterday
What’s the point in searching
Knowing you’re not there to find
Why give someone life
If death is following behind
So why God when He took my love
Did He not take me too
For life is not worth living
If it means I don’t have you...

    My new poet friend, your verse was wonderful, it's the contests that you must correctly name your form, the reason for this is we are all learning here and the contests add the process, never put I don't know...ask the judge or a friend if in doubt OR VERSE is a good catch all. I SO enjoyed the emotion in this write, you got right to my heart! Light & Love

    Raina - this piece touched me so much, and brought a tear to my eyes having lost my beloved husband just nine weeks ago it totally sums up all the questions one has and the feelings in ones heart. I wish you more power to your pen - keep it flowing. Rgds Janette
