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
