Help me understand why my loved one had to die.
Help me to quit asking you “why?”
Forgive me for all those times I blamed you.
Help me understand that only you know why things happen
the way they do.
Help me understand that only you can heal my broken heart.
And that one day we’ll meet again to never part.
Help me understand that for now I just have to let things be,
But that you will always be there to comfort me.
And though I may be living my worst fears,
One day you will make sure there are no more tears.
Help me be patient with those that do not understand my pain.
Help me to accept that this is my great loss,
But also your great gain.
Help me see through my blurry eyes,
All the love and mercy you have shown.
Help me to see that really,
You just called my loved one home,
And though it hurt deeply, you really did no wrong.
Help me to know that only my faith in you can keep me strong.
Lord, please carry me through this,
So that one day, when I see my loved one again,
I too may have eternal bliss.
