Why and While

Why heart is the tenderest thing,

While love is but the roughest thing?

Why the two needs encountering,

For the suffering to beget?

.

Why bygones can’t be just bygones,

While present is mostly cheat’ on?

Why, why memory needs to haunt,

Merely for the sore to beget?

.

Why is it true that you left me,

While your charm I can still see?

Why and while I still feel for ye,

For me your feeling never beget?
