Three Sons Lost

Poem By Jessie Greer

So sad and so painful,
A life has disappeared...
So sudden and so shocking,
One evening... just gone?

A life taken without a reason,
A son gone... and it can't be justified

Frustration, pain and even anger is
What's left for us to feel inside...
How could this have happened?
So young yet and so naive

It feels so unfair... Why Lord?
Almost as if we have been cheated by life... by fate... by the stars in the sky...

Tears fill my eyes as it won't add up in my mind...
Three lives taken... Three bright sons...
Irreplaceable to this world
So much they had to live for...
Gone in a moment... By the bullet of a GUN!

Who to blame and who to comfort...
All seems unclear right now

Undoubtedly though... love can definitely be felt,
Love for all the young people whose lives were cut short...
May you all rest in peace...

Wherever you may have gone...
I hope you're looking down with a smile onto this unjustified world...
May God bless your souls...
R.I.P. Jeffrey 'Scotty' Greer II, Edward 'Tommy' Jernigan & Tony Grimes

Our thoughts will forever be with you.

I feel your pain through your 2 poems. Keep writing. I do want to encourage you by giving comfort through my poetry written here on poemhunter. Many religions teach that Almighty God 'takes' our loved ones, which is not true. Does that sound like the God of Love? This teaching is not true. The Creator of heaven, earth and all life created us to live, on earth, forever. That was his original purpose when He created the first man and woman. His purpose has not changed. You can read about it in my poems, 'The Answer' 'The Answer, Complete' 'True Comfort For Those Who Mourn' all of which are based on the promises in God's word, the Bible. He will restore Paradise to the earth and bring back our dead loved ones. Too good to be true? No, for God does not lie. The real 'ruler of this world' does not want anyone to know that he is the cause of death. Who is the real ruler of the world? What does the future hold for our loved ones? Please read some of my poems. You can print the long ones so you can re-read them for comfort. Thank you.
Writing is wonderful therapy, Jessie. Keep healing yourself.
