Why So Soon?

Here one day, gone the next.

My dear child, why so soon?

The light of hope in my dismal life

struck down by hunger.

My dear child, why so soon? 

Seeing your simple happiness filled my life with joy.

Now you're gone. 

Why so soon?

Your life had only just begun.

I'll miss you, my child.

As I ask, why so soon?
