Purpose

For the night I slept
Was the only cried
As I lay in peace-
Only death by my side…
And when it came
Like a bird it passed
For it was not me
My life would last…
I thought for a moment
The luck on my side
Until I found who was taken
The pain to confide…
I would have gone
My tears had said
I was not afraid
Or filled with regret…
But the deed was done
I had no say
They mistakenly took you
Now I stand at your grave…
I’d once heard
Of survival’s remorse
But that was in the stories
Not a loss so forced…
While I’ll never know why
In time I suppose
For its only at peace
That purpose is exposed.
