Don’t Know Why

Straight from the Heart

Winter Scene Cowboy

Don’t Know Why

Don’t know why the twists and turns

our paths so often take

Don’t know why blue skies turn gray

and cause our hearts to break

Don’t know why when a babe is born

it’s left alone in in the dark

With no one to love and hold it close

and comfort its fearful heart

Don’t know why love comes and goes

like the changing of the wind

Don’t know why our time on earth

is over before it begins

Don’t know why the if’s and but’s

that oft come in to play

Don’t know why a loving word

is oft so hard to say

I guess it’s not for me to know

the why’s of every day

But to walk in faith and trust that God

will lead me all the way

I've been blessed with a forty-five-year marriage, a son, four grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. I am a cancer survivor and thank God for His healing touch; physically and emotionally. Having battled depression for most of my life, music, writing, and digital design are tremendous outlets for me. I hope you enjoy your visit and that you'll come back again.
