Questions

In my mind...
round and round.
Questions without answers..
Answers where questions have
never been asked.

Confusion without understanding.

What?...where?...how?
When?....why?
did it end?...did you go?

I thought to hold your
heart carefully in the
palm of my hand.

I thought to cradle
you tenderly and
help you to stand.

I thought to color
your world with joy
and peace and happiness.

I thought to stand
beside you and help
you to grow.

I thought to love
you and share with
you the days that we lived.

But everything changes...

Now, I find no sun.
It's brightness seems to have faded
and hidden behind a gray,
colorless cloud.

Now, I listen for the
singing of the birds,
but they seem to have
all gone mute.

Now, I turn with a smile,
turn to share,
to find you're no longer
there or listening.

Now, my footsteps are alone.

Now, the good days are when I don't cry.
Now, a heart full of love has no one to give to.
Now, only a thousand questions remain.

Why?
When?
How?
Where?
Did the love go?

Questions without answers..

And they echo and echo and echo in my mind.
