If I could talk to God
I would only ask him why?
Why so much pain in this world?
Why good people always die?
With a soft stuttering voice
And a nod towards the ground
I would say “I’ve searched for this answer
I've searched all around
But no one can ever tell me
For their mind it is out of there bound
For this Answer I seek only the truth
With you I figured I would find
Because you are the creator of my world
With a distinguished reputation of being kind"
As I suspect he would give me an answer
He would tell me why good people die
He would say "I do it for a reason
To help better someone else’s life
For them by going through this experience
A change in their life they won't deny
A hint of reality
A hint that in life there is a purpose
If I did not have to give out these gifts
Then I would have already resurfaced
To give someone a chance at paradise
To live in the Kingdom of Heaven
The one who is chosen must sacrifice
I give them a choice before I take them
As my son did, and many have done
I know it was hard but it was their decision"
As I am overwhelmed with feeling
And I am shocked full of stun
He say's "don’t think I am cruel; I don’t do this for fun"
With an understanding look on my face
I would say that I finally know my place
With a look in his eye and a smile full of grace
I'll gladly be waiting to take someone else’s place
