Did we do the right thing?

Will she forgive us? 

I lay here in the tall tall grass

Looking up at the blue sky above

Asking these questions

Hoping for the right answer

But what is the right answer?

Should I be proud of the life she lived

Or should I grieve for the life we have to live Without her.

—poem by Chandra Duba
