You look at me with tears in your eyes
Begging, pleading, asking God why?
You say I am too young
Too much life left to be done
High school graduation, jobs, marriage, children
Heroes and villains and all that will remain hidden
I am telling you it’s okay
I smile and simply say
Why not me?
Maybe it has to be
If it’s God’s plan and it’s my time
Then in His hands I will be fine
We can’t understand
A better lesson learned
A life being returned
My heart given to someone new
My kidneys will be donated too
My lungs will help someone breathe
Parts of me will continue to be
Maybe a foundation in my name
Will raise enough to change the game
In the meantime don’t be sad
Remember the time we have had
A lifetime wrapped up in just a few short years
When you cry let them be joyful tears
Things happen that only He can see
So I ask again, why not me?
Why should it be yourself
Or even someone else?
I am strong, brave, and courageous, can’t you see?
That is why I say why not me?
I trust in God’s plan so I don’t ask why me?
Let your smile be the last thing I see
