If Only we Had Known

If only you’d have told us, surely someone cared
If only we had known would your life have been spared?
The winds still blows, the sun shines on…
Day and night, the noon the dawn
Roll on and on, but you are gone….

Was there really nothing left worth living for?
When one door closes there’s another door
Now your mother’s tears will never dry
Your friends can only weep and wonder ‘why’
As those who loved you most can only cry

Star still twinkle in the night sky up above
We still all have someone here to laugh with and to love
But there will never be another you
No one here will ever fill your shoes
We would have held your hand, if we only knew…..
Oh God, help us understand and walk us through

In loving memory of Henri S.

By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept....
then we remembered Zion. Ps. 137:1

My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth,
Your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be. Ps. 139:15-16
