A God-less Universe

If this is all there is, that what you see is what you get, there is no God to save us, to mete out reward and punishment, no reason to ask Why do bad things happen to good people? (because the universe is random in its cruelty), there are no rewards or punishments, no deserving, it is all but cause and effect, cause and effect, coincidence, and we are just incipient compost - I'll still take it, without any complaints.

I get to see this every morning, this light on leaves, on fragile petals.  I could leave now, and yet have lived enough. I could leave without asking that most egoistic and ridiculous of questions,"Why me?"

In a God-less universe, every little thing is a miracle, even more so.
