Are You Ready

I wasn't ready Lord,
for you to take him away from me.
It wasn't a good time for you to come today.
It seems you haven't heard
a word I had to say.
I prayed so hard as did many others.
He had so many loving brothers.
The doctors did all they knew how to do,
so God what's the matter with you?!

Where is the power you claim,
and the greatness of Your Holy Name?
Do you even dare to say
you know the depth of my pain?
I counted on you to make things right.
you took him in my very sight.

I am not the only one he unwillingly left behind.
Can't you see their tears?
How will I quiet their fears?
How will I ever live without this precious one.
How could you sacrifice your only
begotten son?

Psalm 30:5 “For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay
for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning”.
