Why did you have to die

start Why did you have to die I wake each morning to start a new day In hopes this hollow feeling has gone away It hurts so much not to see your face Nothing could ever take your place I sit and think of you then I start to cry I miss you guys so much, why did you have to die This isn’t how it was supposed to be Never would have imagined in my worst dreams We were to be a whole family To grow old and live happily Taken just three years apart You will never be forgot My husband and my daughter Having two gone is so much harder God took both of you It makes it hard to continue I always ask “Why” Why you guys have to die The loneliness I feel Is so surreal The ache in my heart, the long sleepless nights I don’t see happiness, it’s nowhere in sight Always on my mind Peace I’ll never again find Before you guys left I used to be strong Now I feel like I don’t belong Something is missing Something is wrong My life is not the same I really want someone to blame I used to be happy, laughing all the time Now here I sit writing a sad little rhyme Why you guys have to die ? Can’t someone please tell me why

I too am worried. Children are not welcoming conversation into their lives as fast as they are welcoming visual effects, and electronic devices. As a matter of fact, in some instances, conversation has ceased, saved up to be used "on line" friends. This is scary to me!

This is beautifully written, Carrie. So upbeat, positive and wonderful when you really stop and think about what you are saying. Empathy to the maximum degree here! I love it!

I do not think anything can be written that will help take the pain away or make this poem any more profound. Know that many are sending you hope and prayers, and I am one.
