MERRY MERRY WHY DOES YOUR GARDEN GO

MERRY MERRY WHY DOES YOUR GARDEN GO?

I am in a quandary and I have but one query
I have a question that leaves me perplexed and left lasciviously leery
there is one fact I shall die never knowing
and quite frankly each day my question keeps growing

setting aside the main issue at hand
help me, please, to make me understand
I needn't know why you're here in the first place
that's your business and which have no right to embrace

I see you smile sometimes when the sun shines from the east
but all too often when the sun is setting in the west I see the signs of a beast
when the day is done I see the frowns that have taken their toll
and I see the remnants of the smile which he stole

all the wondering and all the hows and whys
all the intuition I claim to have suddenly and fleetingly dies
I cannot figure out nor can I pretend to know
why you carry such a heavy burden in tow

ever since I saw your face i've been made to wonder why
why you keep saying hello when you should be saying “goodbye”
it's as if i'm at a funeral after someone close to me has died
as I ponder the question why you remain by his side
