WHY

 

                                                          

 

 Do we pause and wonder Why

There is a sun, a moon, a sky?

 

Why life’s pleasures pass us by,

While wilfully we sit and cry

Over things that make no sense,

On a journey of no consequence

 

Why for no apparent reason

A soul departs before their season,

While selfishly we prate and plead,

And sit and ponder petty deeds

 

Why one whose life had just begun

Will nevermore enjoy the sun,

Or smile under stars at night,

Face aglow in pale moonlight

 

Why a Mother tried so hard to live

And to her son a future give,

Her life long path a valedictory,

We sat and shared her time of victory

 

Why should we not now contemplate

And dwell not in sad dreams of fate,

But pause instead to wonder why

There is a sun, a moon, a sky?
