    this can't be how it ends
    somebody made a mistake
    not me
    not here
    not now
    and how did this happen anyway?
    though i have some details
    a complete story cannot be made from this
    they don't know what i know about him
    i hold his picture near my heart
    wishing each beat would bring forth his life
    eyes clenched in a dear god i need you prayer
    for these acts require an explanation
    left to my own devices
    i struggle with what might have been
    on his way home
    on his way to work
    on his way to see his babies
    or maybe just on his way
    i place myself on every corner
    watching with close guarded caution
    assuring his safe passage
    as i clutch the picture tighter
    squint my eyes until they hurt
    he gets by those who wish to consume
    my joy fills the room for a moment
    then...i remember
    he's gone
    dear god in the church i lived all my life
    on my knees i ask
    why this?
    why now?
    why me?
    i cannot cry enough tears to sooth the pain
    this hole is forever empty
    god looks upon me
    face of loving concern
    god knows i need answers right now
    and he sees the truth...but waits
