Suddenly Taken

As we grieve the passing of another loved one
 
Our mending hearts shattered one more time
 
We reach out to heaven, ask what we’ve done
 
Forsaken we are, though guilty of no crime!
 
But here we stand firm, our faith never gone
 
Though we know not the reason, nor the rhyme
 
With our spirits unbroken, yet pale and drawn
 
We ask forgiveness, and rid ourselves of grime
 
Only so much pain, for our hearts to go on
 
With no rest, our sanity’s hanging on a dime
 
But we believe after midnight, comes the dawn
 
After tribulations, awaits heaven sublime!
 
Sadly, yet another loved one suddenly taken
 
To His will we bow, though our hearts are broken!

My wife's nephew passed away after a long illness, five months after his father (my wife's older brother) died suddenly. I simply wrote what I think she feels right now.
