One Fell Alone

Forword: Written after a 15 yr. old girl took her own life
at my sons school, no note, nothing to explain her pain. 

Just a child from what I hear,
like others was forced to grow up too fast;
Broken hearted rejected and alone,
unable to find one last straw to grasp.

Where were all those caring hearts,
in her desparate time of need;
Not even a close friend nearby,
to listen to her final plea.

Now we all mourn much too late,
for another soul not cherished or adored;
Maybe the gift of our time to save a child,
is something we all could afford.

So we wonder now what God's intentions were,
when this unwanted child came to be;
Perhaps we all had a part to shape her,
into what God could only see.

It takes deep love and committment,
to be humble and serve anothers needs;
It is the reason we were all created,
and why he died for you and me.

    Very beautiful. It seems like this happens all too often and we must be reminded of this.
