Why, Oh Why
by Irene Morgan
Rosy chubby cheeks, fair skin, golden hair, bright blue eyes, A gloating smile, a big
My body feels week, my eyes swollen with tears A heart so broken, my face full of fear
Yesterday we laughed as we played with your rattle, Our joy so great -- like winning a battle The love in your touch, the grace in your smile Why, oh why for such a short while?
Today for a moment I thought you were here I prayed for the sound of your voice loud and clear I walked in your room, I stood by your crib, I asked, "Why, oh why dear God, why all the pain?"
I looked at your picture; your presence was felt A calm, a peace, a love so divine
The joy that you brought, the lives that you've touched, The lessons you taught us, the knowledge of love We paid a dear price -- The price is our pain, For a love so profound dear God -- I would do it again.
