Why did things between us change
What winds that blew changed your mind
Minor things suddenly became major
Causing a ripple between you and me

Why did doubt creep in your mind
I'm the same man and nothing changing
I'm still the one exploring you
Learning your dislikes and dispelling the myths

Why didn't you ask when you felt unsure
Letting doubt rule you or insecurity felt
Shutting me out instead of inquiring
Not wanting to bother for fear of losing

Why didn't we understand what we have
A love that is flourishing from the seed that we sowed
Creating a flower that has the potential of perfection
We both have weeds that we can remove

Why didn't I ask the questions I now ask
Maybe I was blinded and didn't see your needs
Lady I'm truly sorry for what I didn't know
Insecurity from me and doubts from you
Are dangerous combinations for our new love

Why can't we ask questions of each other
For not knowing or ignoring the signs
Are simple things that stand in our way
So please ask the questions even if its why

Why? by Tony P.
