Tell Me Why

Tell me why
my daughter had to go?
So young!
I really want to know.

Is it to test
how much I can endure?
If so,
It’s the worst test for sure.

Is it a lesson
for me to learn?
Then, why should it
be taught with enormous pain?

Let me know,
it might help ease my days
And bring to their darkness
some sun rays.

Will I ever hold her
in my arms again?
Please say, “ yes,”
At least to keep me sane.
