A Question to God


I lie here in my bed

Darkness surrounds

The body but the mind

Is bright, alive and

Questioning my purpose

Here on earth

I ask the almighty God

What is your reason

For keeping me alive

When my body refuses

To move, when I am

Dependent on all others

What could you possibly

Have for a reason for

Keeping me here and alive

I heard an answer and

It was quite clear

You are here because

You are my child

I gifted you with both

A heart and a soul

Pure and innocent

You do not need

To speak nor

Move from here

Your smile is

Your gift to give

And when you have

Completed this task

I will bring you home

And you will walk freely

With me my child.
