“Why do you leave me” is a poem about the pain of losing a loved one. The poet explains the feeling of loneliness and emptiness that death creates in the life of those alive.


Why did you have to leave me?

When all my world was crashing down before me

You were to comfort me

Why did you leave me?

You seemed to be fine as I sat there and held you

You meant the world to me and you have to go

But as I sit here I won’t let you leave my heart

Day after day I sit; will you be there waiting for me

Up in heaven

And if you are near all I want is to see you just one last time
