Why Did You Take My Love? - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

Can't the world just give her back to me to hold for one more time?
Oh how I want to kiss her soft, tender lips, and, hold her gentle, creative hands in mine.
I scream to the wind, the air does not stir, 'why take her from me? '
Can not the universe feel my pain of this horrid atrocity?
My head in my hands, I sob, tears slipping down my burning cheeks,
dropping down upon my love, who was my everything, but now slumbers away in peace.
What horror could do this, separate me from my love?
'Why did you take my love? ', I shout to God up above?
The clouds now gather, the air has developed a brutal chill,
as a voice whispers in my ear, 'because it was God's will.'
