Lament for the loss of a Child

“Why” Does not tell the tale within, Lord.

The feelings are far to deep.

The burning in our bones for reason, justice, answers!

He/She died to young.

Our tear drenched eyes still see him/her.

Smiling up from the cradle,

Crawling on the floor,

Walking down the aisle,

Running on the playgrounds of life.

Where are you!  This was too soon!  Not Right!  Not like this!

Where are you now?  We feel abandoned in our loss.

Come, Lord, Jesus,

catch our tears.

Come, Holy One,

hold our aching hearts.

Come, Lord, Jesus,

and we will fall upon your arms,

rest our weary heads upon your chest,

and place our pain in your scars.  Amen.
