Why does the world turn?
Like pages in a book
Unfolding the universe
Chapter and verse
Before our eyes

Why do the clouds make rain?
Like Gods wisdom, falling from the sky
Making life unfold before our eyes
Poem and verse, never explained
In the mist, we wonder in vain

Why does my heart beat?
For someone so far away
The moon, lifting up towards the nighttime sky
As cold winds wipe away my thoughts
One must ask, why?

When will she see?
Like waves in the ocean
Adventures were meant to be
Exploring new worlds
Where all things become possible

    :) this one of my picks :) i like 2nd line but i like more the last line... :) there is that sense of discovery in the lines and the feeling of hope in it.. :) the 2nd stanza denotes for me God's grace when we start to find answers to our unanswered thoughts and prayers.. :)

    Hola Arthur; I'm back, this is a very good question of Why? The world keeps changing everyday and everyday it's turning. Sometimes we don't see it, because we are too busy with other things. Great poem and gracias .... Lucilla .
