Why didn't you...

by Romantic Lover   Nov 8, 2009

What am I fighting for
I don't really understand
You're not there anymore
To simply hold my hand

A lover I found in you
But also the greatest friend indeed
You've taught me so much
I can't give you up, for it is you that I need

I've blossomed in many ways
But now I've lost so much
So much strength you gave
With simply a soft touch

Good news or bad
Or simply for advice
I could always count on you
But now I think twice

I keep looking at my phone
But it just doesn't ring
Not even a buzz
A text it doesn't bring

Those moments were so very often
But now have become extremely rare
Words is ALL we have between us
To show how much we care

You are incredibly wonderful
And to me so fine
But why can't you stop and say hello
Seconds it would only be nine

It only takes phone call
Your voice is what I need
The most important thing you took away from me
My greatest desire you no longer feed

It sounds too simple
Wanting to hear your voice
This path we have explored
Was both of our choice

I have the greatest respect for you
Having always praised you for your ways
But somehow I fell off of your heavy plate
And I don't hear from you for so many days

I need you so much
I can't begin to explain
Why didn't you stop me from saying goodbye
Why did you refrain

I would wait a lifetime
For a moment with you
But not knowing when I'll see you
Tears me up in two

I don't want to hurt you
Or ever cause you any pain
But it definitely hurts me
For you always think I complain

I'm so very confused
Words I simply need to hear
"Don't let go of me my beautiful,
You I truly need near."
