Why? - Poem by Emelita C. Smith

There are times I look at the sky
and I wondered why the moon
shines only at night, where did it
go during the daylight?

There are times I look at the sun
and I wondered why it only smile
during the day, where did it
go at night?

There are times I feel the wind
touches my skin and I wondered
why, I cannot hold it in my arms
and keep it by my side?

There are times I closed my eyes
and I wondered why, I still can see
the image of life even in the dark
why can't I choose what to see?

There are times in my life I wondered
what is love, why do people fall in love?
why do people fall out of love?
why I wondered why?

There' are times I asked my self
what I need in my life?
I need to love and be love and I wondered why
do we hurt the one we love?

    It's shinning, it's just overshadowed by the brightness of the sun. The moon is the lesser light that governs the night. (Report) Reply
