Why Did You Forsake Me? - Poem by poppy miller

As the clock struck the half hour
A whisper was heard in the silence deep
To the man, "Why did you forsake me? "
But to the mother, "I love you, do not weep."
The mourners hung their heads and wept
At the sound of the rattling groan
But the man of sin ne'er dared to look
Where the mother stood still and alone.
