A Poem by Olive Belikov

Why did this happen?
I can't believe this.
She laid there restless
With a gash on her wrist.
I ran to her in panic...she made no sound
My heart began to uncontrollably pound. 
Tears streamed down my face
I began to shake.
Thoughts were running through my mind
There was nothing I could do
There was nothing I could say
I knew this was the end
She lay there breathless...dead..

This is one question we may never find the answer, I can feel the emotion of what it’s like to be on the other side, that sense of helpless without a solution in the end we find there’s nothing we can do but pray and put it in the lords hands.
Excellent write.
