Why? ? ? - Poem by Pietro Grossi

Why You have been not sincere?
When said don't look for me anymore
So resolutely, that got me fear,
I interpreted it as a final break.

Where did you find all that courage,
To go alone to open the door,
It was Pride, Shame, Sense Of Despair,
And did you let my mind swim in the fake.

How strong You were, it stop my breth, You teacher
To go ahead so lone to face..to stand..
..The monster that divours, without forgive
And nowadays, yet, it gives to world its brand.

Together we were smiling in that picture
On the lake edge, a long time ago,
Why didn't keep me to edge, till to the end
Let give my last farewell..I still don't know

Poet's Notes about The Poem

After 30 years of thinking, the answer is still: Why? ?

She was at last days of her life, but didn't want to say.
