original poems by john allen

why?

john and gina
gina and john
that was how -
we had it planned

two partners for life
me striving my best
to make you happy
you, loving me

now it's just john
no loving partner
a hole in my soul -
an empty bed

i try, i really do
it works sometimes
other times it fails
and i cry...

i had fun today
went to the park
the dog and I
we took the camera

you would have loved it
just as we'd imagined
except for one thing
you weren't there

now it's hours later
and you still aren't here
never will be again
why?
