Why do Good People Die Young

Oh! great one,I long for answer this day,
Why do good things terminate suddenly?,
And evil deeds prolong perpetually?,
This haunts and bugs me,for this is no play,
Oh!my beloved!why you left I can`t say,
This I know;you`re a gracious being.. truly,
Saddened as your life was cut abruptly,
Many beings like you wallowed in decay.

I do want to live long,should I do good?
why?as aura of death hangs around me,
Losing good fellow like you makes me nude,
Is it fate or what ? I want to be free,
Oh,great one! why?,why?...'I hate to be rude',
Why?are the pretty ones hang on a tree?
