Poetry

Why

By Jaken Steele

You looked deeply into my eyes
Into my very soul
Happiness lied there

My love for you was strong
Pure and unselfish as a child
It grew more with each day

I gave you everything I had
My heart, my soul…my life
Then you left me

Now I sit alone in sorrow
A shell of who I once was
You've left me empty

All I can do is hope and
Pray that you'll come back
So I sit and wonder…why?
