Why Was He Taken Away?
by Faith Noles 3/01/2014 / Poetry
Why, I ask, was he taken away? The son I wanted so dear.
Taken before he saw the day--enclosed in my womb so near
Now I feel so empty and life within me gone---lost my little joy.
My womb barren; unfulfilled; alone; where is my baby boy?
Couldn't heaven have done without his light for a time?
Aren't there plenty of angels in heaven sweet sublime?
Why couldn't I hold him and see him grow--to light my life with joy?
Oh, God, why did You take away my precious little boy?
Why, I ask, did I ever conceive ,when robbed of the life of my son?
I cannot change circumstances; nor change what has been done.
But I feel such pain and anger at this loss of mine,
I feel that I'll never understand the reason of God's design.
God, let there be comfort and allow my son to know,
That I miss him dearly and I'll always love him so.
I'll accept this loss as Your will, but I can't contain my grief.
Give me comfort in knowing that my baby knows sweet peace.
Bring it ever to my mind that he's safe in Jesus' arms,
And that my darling little son will never know earth's harms.
