The lovely Why


Why our feelings seek for someone!

Why can’t we be contended alone!

Why this emptiness arise in our chests!

Why an unknown guilt harbor in our breasts!

Why our expressions become so pale!

Why those happy emotions die!

Why our eyes freeze at some thoughts!

Why they tear without reason aught!

Why the flowery spring turns grey!

Why the fragrance vanish in a gloomy day!

Why our manly willingness bows!

Why that joyful voice mourns!

Why the burden leaps with dawn!

Why the sorrow dwells in night!

Why the Sun shines so dull!

Why the dark covers the moon!

Why the human looses the soul!

Why the lips never smile!

    I agree with Colleen Courtney. Shakespeare says, nature changes according to the mood of the man. It's a lovely poem from you. (Report) Reply

    Lovely write! But maybe all the why's are because we must first learn to live and love and be comfortable with ourselves first? Just a thought! (Report) Reply
