Treasure Island

But Why


Why do I seek the impossible, Why do I love the most beautiful
Why am I shy and scared of the inevitable.
I love you, I admire you, I want you
Today I request the love of a Queen
Tomorrow the love of such queen will set me free
Deep in the universe we conquer all
But why, but why, but why! All I ask for is for us to share a life
Why would not you want to be my wife
You are over there, I am just here
Now I feel lots of fear; why cannot the sky be clear
In my dreams we share a family
together we plant for the great harvest
A family that prays together stays together
As we live everyday things get better, In Jesus name we live happily
Oh yes, you are the best!
Why am I dreaming for luck, why do I sound lonely and confused
The bullet came, why did I not duck; Well now I am dull
May I stay and cry; I wished you cared
But why such trance, why such lost
But why, but why, but why!

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
