to know

No one seems to understand Why I can’t let you go. If only it were that easy And there were things I didn’t know I’ve looked into my heart Blessed and broken though it is I still see you in there Like a mirror of a wish Your picture still resides In the eyes of my mind Perhaps a fond remembrance Of someone I’ll never find… Is there a problem, child? Why do you cry so soon? Is there a hidden secret Laying dark inside your room? I think I understand Why you had to leave But it doesn’t make the pain Any easier to grieve Each tick of the clock Life’s minute passes by One more song to sing Another question “why” Someday seems so far away When time goes so slow A melody of soft restraint Wonders what there is to know…
