Poem: Why Won’t You Talk

Why Won’t You Talk

Why won’t you talk?
About the things that you feel
Yes it’s you and me
We share a common history

What can I do?
To get through to you
What can I say?
To make your pain go away

Once you enjoyed being in my arms
Your personality charmed
You were made for me
We shared our destiny

But now distant you’ve become
Like the setting sun
A million miles away
You never want to play

Despair has overtaken you
More deadly than the flu
Will you ever return to me?
The girl once that I did see

While we share our life
As husband and wife
Somewhere gloom and despair
We were a handsome pair

To death do we part
Was our pledge from the start
I will stay the course
God’s strength is my source

I count myself blessed
I married the best
A lover and a friend
Faithful to the end

A companion for life
Together we survived strife
You’ve put up with me
Forever grateful I will be

Still I wonder … why won’t you talk?
About the things that you feel
Yes it’s you and me
We share a common history
