Leaving Me To Wonder Why…

A moment ago you were there
I saw you by my side
Holding hands, we flew together
Pain and sorrow we defied
A moment ago I saw you smile
Heard you laugh out loud
Then you left me alone and went
Disappeared into the crowd
Leaving me to wonder why
If I should laugh or I should cry
Is life like this all the time?
A moment ago I saw you wish
For us to be together always
Friends forever, never split,
For the rest of our happy days
A moment ago I saw you cry
When the pain it pierced your heart
You cried into my shoulder then
Share the worry you felt from the start
A moment later, I saw you go,
Without so much as a hug goodbye
Leaving me to wonder why
If I should laugh or I should cry
Is life like this all the time?
You may have gone away for now
But never dying shall be my love
I shall await your return one day
For that day to come soon I pray

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
