God Only Knows

by Richard Lawrence Belford

God Only Knows

Just as miracles are, God sent,
tragedies occur for reasons
known only to God.

Whether it is the gift of birth
or the loss of a life,
one cannot exist without the other.

The gift of life is just that.
The power of reason is the knowledge
there’s no guarantee.

So, enjoy what you’re given,
mourn what you’ve lost
finding comfort in, God only knows.
