The Pig

  It was an evening in November,
As I very well remember.
I was walking down the street in drunken pride,
And my knees were all a flutter,
So I landed in the gutter,
And a pig walked up and laid down at my side.
Yes, I lay there in the gutter,
Thinking thoughts I could not utter,
When a colleen passing by did softly say,
‘You can tell the man that boozes,
By the company he chooses…’
At that, the pig got up and walked away.

Why?

Why do we love?
If Life will make us part…

Why do our feelings grow?
If days will change them all

Why does our heartbeat with warm passion?
If the distance between us blows it off

Why do I give you my heart?
If you don’t even try to start

Why do you tell me you love me so much?
When you can’t care for me enough

Why do I respond to your touch?
When I can’t erase from my heart this fear

Why can’t I stop these painful tears?

Why can’t I be cruel to you when you’re so near…?

Why do you promise?
When you can’t make dreams come true

Why do I still smile at you?
Although the endless pain I go through

I wonder why.
Why it all had to die…
