Why Can'T I - Poem by Mousheera Shafik

Why can't I breathe?
Whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak?
Whenever I speak about you
Why can't I see?
See no one else but you
Why can't I feel?
Feel no touch but yours
Why can't I dream?
Dream a dream without you
Why can't I smile?
Whenever um so far from you
Why can't I be?
Whenever um not with you

Why can't I?
Please tell me why
When um with you
I touch the sky
When um without you
I'd rather die

Why can't I?
Please tell me why
When you are here
We both fly
When you are there
We both cry
