 Elsie`s Poetry



Why aren`t you here with me now to hold me tight
Long into the dark enchanting moonlit night?  
Why aren`t you here with me to put your lips on mine
To love me and tell me that everything will be fine?

Why do I have to look at the moon alone?
The closest we ever get is on the `phone.
Will we ever share the night together do you think?
Or will there always be, between us, that broken link?

Why aren`t you here to count the stars with me
And wish on a shooting star that we may see?
Why must I lie here lonely night after night?
When to have you here would be a delight.

Why must I dream alone in this big empty bed?
When on your chest I could just lay my head,
Many questions but no answers and this I resent
The word `why` seems to be my lasting lament.

I certainly don`t lay the blame at your door
For I know if you could you`d be here for sure,
It`s just so hard to be apart from you
So in the meantime my heart will stay blue.
