Why Doesn’t She Love Me?


She doesn't know
what love looks like.
She thought it was
hidden in her father's pipe.
She thought it was the way
Mommy left her dad that night.
She thought it was the way
the leaves fell and died.
She thought it was the empty
bottles and the ashes in the tray.
She thought it was the lies of a
boy and everything he took away.
She doesn't know
what love looks like...
Because she's never
seen it done right.
So don't be surprised when you
show her it's in a smile
and it's the holding of a hand.
Don't be surprised when you show her
and she doesn't understand.
