You Know Better Than I

When my father died, I had so many questions. Why him? Why so sudden? I had dreams for him which did not materialize. Why was he not able to wait? My answers were answered by this poem.


You Know Better Than I

I thought I did what’s right

I thought I had the answers

I thought I chose the surest road

But that road brought me here

So I put up a fight

And told you how to help me

Now just when I have given up

The truth is coming clear

You know better than I

You know the way

I’ve let go the need to know why

For You know better than I

If this has been a test

I cannot see the reason

But maybe knowing

I don’t know is part of getting through

I tried to do what’s best

But faith has made it easy

To see the best thing i can do

Is to put my trust in You.

For, You know better than I

You know the way

I’ve let go the need to know why

For You know better than I

I saw one cloud and thought it was a sky

I saw a bird and thought that I could follow

But it was You who taught that bird to fly

If i let You reach me

Will You teach me.

For, You know better than I

You know the way

I’ve let go the need to know why

I’ll take what answers you supply

You know better than I.
