The Fault in our stars

How is it humanly possible to not be mad at God when He takes that one person who we thought He gave to us?

That one person who, 
When you kiss,
You kiss every star in the universe,
You look into their eyes and you see the sun beaming down on you.
When you touch them, 
You in fact feel like you falling into a black hole of pure happiness.

You thank God for this person, 
Who gives you this opportunity to feel this way, 
The way you feel, 
Is to feel so dam alive,
But what's the closest to feeling alive?
Being human is life.

That answers your question about how is it humanly possible to not be angry at God.

The fact you felt alive before they were gone, 
Is let alone a gift.
To be human.
To be life.
God’s ultimate gift.

(this poem was inspired after watching the movie "the fault in our stars", hence the same title. Hope you enjoy)
