Why

Why?

 

Why does everybodies world still turn

When our world feels like an endless churn

Why are all around us happy still

When every day’s like climbing a hill

 

How can we ever smile again

When everything divides into now and then

All that was good seems gone and long ago

What lies ahead we don’t seem to want to know

 

Why can we hardly bear a happy face

Why is it hard seeing someone embrace

Why do I now hate “Have a good day”

Now that all good days have gone away

 

Why is there nothing to look forward to

Why’s there no end to what we’re going through

Why can we not just turn back time

Return to the days, when our world was fine

 

We want you back in our arms

So that you feel no pain, no harms

I can’t imagine living without you

Waiting for death is what seems left to do

 

Then I remember you were always positive

You loved to laugh, you loved to live

You would have wanted us to carry on

Even without you, now that you are gone

 

Your memory shall give us power

To go through every lonely hour

Until in heaven we finally meet again

And be together happy and forever then
