Poem: Why Lord

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Why Lord

Why Lord,
do I have tears in my eyes
when you provide me with all I need?
Give me contentment.

Why Lord,
do I feel lonely
when I know you are with me?
Give me comfort.

Why Lord,
do I think my cup is half empty
when I know you refill it?
Give me gratefulness.

Why Lord,
do you put people in my life
only to take them away?
Give me understanding.

Why Lord,
must I travel
this road alone?
Give me peace.
