I wonder why I look at you,

When you are not there anymore.

I wonder why I try to fight this lock,

When you were the one to open the door.

 

Seeing shadows that turn to light.

I see you day in and at night.

Looking at the sky I ask why,

If I will live or will I die?

 

I wonder why I embrace you,

When you are the air that I grasp.

I wonder why the world turns slow,

When you were the only one that made it fast.

 

Showing great sadness for myself,

I found the sun in your big eyes.

Looking at myself, I ask why,

Will I get it after a thousand tries?

 

I wonder why I breathe in vast space,

When you are the breath I can take.

I wonder why I still have a pulse,

When you were the only beat my heart could take.
