GOD was watching you for quite some time now

HE saw how tired u were getting and he knew that there was no cure for you

SO

He stretched out his arms and put them around your fragile body and in a whispering voice he said

Dearest child COME TO ME..You pain and suffering is now over.I will take care of U.

And my answer to this was just two words

WHY GOD???????.
