Tell Me Why (poem)

Updated on February 10, 2017

Hers was the smile the essences of day

If there was a care it drifted away

There wasn’t a calm her wink couldn’t slay

Why tell me why did she come my way


Lost in her eyes some soft mystery

Like stars in a heaven talking to me

Of dream come alive from some fantasy

Why tell me why then didn’t I flee


She talks to me of realms in the sky

Where she made a space for just her and I

Here we could escape as worlds pass us by

Why tell me why did I sit and sigh


She took me through thoughts I didn’t know

Where whispers and kisses would guide the flow

My heart now answered wherever she’d go

Why tell me why did my love then grow


Then came the words of yes I love you

But how could this be with someone so new

Then time seemed to freeze for dream to come true

Why tell me why won’t time beat anew

      That one has an eerie spud to it, Martin. Very nicely done.
