Wondering what happened to my heart's song?
Why? by phil nelson
    Question Contest Winner 

You wonder why my love has changed?
You ponder why we grew estranged?
To answer, I’ll attach no blame,
but simply say, that it’s a shame.
We once did everything in tune,
and once, you thought I hung the moon! 
I thought that you could do no wrong; 
our love remained forever strong! 
So why now has it come apart?
Why is it that you break my heart? 
Why should i feel ashamed and torn?
Why does my heart feel so forlorn?
Why need I lock these thoughts inside?
Why must this hurt my foolish pride? 
Why was I raised to feel such guilt?
Why does my passion have to wilt?
Why won‘t my heart just scream and shout;
why can’t I let these feelings out??
Why do I wear this coward’s mask;
 and not, to you, these questions ask?
