And There’s The Why (poem)

Updated on June 25, 2015

She sailed away another day

My life she put in disarray

And oh such tears were on display

Why did she go she didn’t say


My mind drew blank I couldn’t see

Friends did their best to comfort me

Such loneliness such misery

Why did she go how can this be


I’d think of her and start to cry

And then the endless trails of why

And just before I thought I’d die

Why did she go I’d sit and sigh


Amidst the time I let it go

But even then time moved so slow

A weary smile began to show

Why did she go don’t care to know


And when again my dawns were new

Then she again walked into view

She hoped we’d start it all anew

Why did she go I wish I knew -



(Clue: A E I O U and sometimes Why - follow rhyme scheme)

      That was lovely Martin. I saw the clues which you mentioned but they did not mean anything to me. I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      Intriguing ... I am thinking on the clue, but may need another clue, like Sha ...not sure I understand.

      Did he let her back in? Or had he moved on?

      I must admit, I don't get the "hint". I don't see the correlation between a vowel and the woman who left without reason.

      Now let's have another good one about "Why not?"
