I Wonder Sometimes

Updated on February 17, 2015

I wonder sometimes....

What would my grandfather look like if he'd stayed alive?

I was young, just a kid getting ready to thrive.

Why can't he be in this world, still a living link?

Instead of being taken by diseases that were caused by the drink.

I wonder sometimes....

Why did my grandma's cancer spread?

Kinda makes one think it's better not to smoke until you're dead.

Oh, I know, the information is much better these days.

But even now we have some folks who think that life pays.

I wonder sometimes....

Why did violence take my cousin?

The man was living on this earth, the devil talked and then he wasn't.

I totally understand, when your numbers' called, it's time.

But the ones that end up hurting are the ones that are left behind.

I wonder sometimes....

Did my friends all have to pass?

Could it at least have waited until they all were done with every high school class?

But now I realize, without those angels up there.

We wouldn't have the guidance, and I don't believe we'd care.

I wonder sometimes....

Is all this just a game?

Nine innings, four quarters, two halves, don't matter it all ends just the same.

The road you travel will always consist of pain and heartbreak, that's real.

But when you feel the spirit of those who have left, it gives you the comfort to heal.

I wonder sometimes....

Will I love the ending?

Will I go out on offense, or will I be defending?

No matter what it's gonna be the way that God had planned.

Since my birth it's all decided so I'll take his hand.

I wonder sometimes.
