So Many Questions - Poem by Lyn Paul

Can't you hold on while the trees grow?
Can't we together, watch the wind blow?
Can we not walk along the beach as we always did?
And talk all night until we fall asleep

Can I survive without you each day?
Will this darkness ever... go away?
My life was so perfect... Yet now time is standing still
Now I must go on... I CAN and I WILL!

I can be strong, just for you I will
You have given me so much, your courage and your love
I will now remember you watching me from above

With you being so strong, This will make me stronger
I shall move on... Knowing your love and your strength will follow

    yes, questions. will 'we' ever know the answers? doubt it.

    i liked the switch from 2 can'ts to 1 can we not.

    and from 5 wills to 1 shall and then back to a will.

    where there are 5 wills and a one shall, there SHALL be a way!

    Wow! Such determination. A very touching piece, Lyn. Hope this one isn't from experience.
    'I will now remember you, watching from above'.
    I assume this is about a love that has passed on, all too quickly.
    A lovely poem, heartfelt.

    Now I must go on... I CAN and I WILL! ..........philosophical write related to God through many questions. We can't survive without God. However the darkness is, it must go way. True and groovy imagination. Thanks for posting......10
