Who Gets a Miracle?

It’s a miracle they say.

The treatment healed the scans revealed

All traces of cancer are gone.

It’s a miracle they say.

Despite the wreckage they walked away

From the accident without harm.

But what of those I say

Whose disease consumes their bodies

That fade before their loved ones eyes?

What of those I say

Who don’t survive the wreckage

And leave this world without goodbyes?

Were they unworthy, did they not pray?

Was God fresh out of miracles that day?

If I were in charge of miracles,

I’d hand them out more freely.

So that everyone got their miracle

Of love or life or healing.
