Why Do Lovers Come And Go?
By: Noah Eaton
2/1/01

So your love disappeared…
Slipping from your hands into the damp atmosphere
And your heart is torn apart
Now everything feels so sudden and so dark

For once we lived those days
When true love flourished in beauty
Of all the sweet couples love that was there to stay
True love there would forever be
Now those days have faded away
The apple tree of lifes green leaves have dried up brown in melancholy
All loves lost remains
Buried deep in the thirsty soil as the trees shagbark quietly bleeds

Please stay strong, please walk on
Love may be lost, but it is never gone
Dreams will come to those who wish for them
Don’t say that love and hope is all in your head

And we’ve gone so far, who’d ever thought it would get this bad
A world dying of love, feeling so bitter cold
And it’s not your fault that true love just fell apart like that
You wonder “Why do lovers come and go?” and you don’t know

Take a walk down your old neighborhood
That burning nostalgia of past beauty and youth bubbling in your veins
Your neighbors would always say hello, and everything was good
The milkman would smile, friends would give hugs and hand shakes
Now you have come back, and you feel just like chopped liver
Moms and dads watching TV, not having the will to help their children with their homework, or to enjoy the great outdoors
You can’t even stay outside any longer, as you shiver
As children’s hearts are raped of innocence and victimized by pain and gore

You wish you could tear away at this desire to be loved every day
Escape yourself and follow the Middle Way, but you end up taking the by-way
Oh, I know how painful it feels
But you’ve got to hold on to your high hopes, keep head over heels

And the times keep changing, who ever thought they’d come so fast
A world dying of love, in a huge garden of empty souls
And it’s not your fault that true love just fell apart like that
You wonder “Why do lovers come and go?” and you don’t know

I know it feels so sudden, but please don’t say it’s over
And I know how hard it feels to stop and wonder
When will I find true love, how much longer
This day will come, for you are a blessed person, a true lover

So your love faded away
Out from your sensitive soul, drowning in sorrows bay
And your heart is shattered to pieces
You feel lost and confused, and you feel you are part of the trenches

There were times when everyone melted in sweet words of charm
Sweethearts smile together, holding hands and serenading
Always loving each other, taking care of each others heart
Roses, kisses, hugs, sweetly celebrating
But now much love is bitter, fake, and never sworn
People harassing one another, leaving others feel terrible
Hearts breaking at every minute, thrown aside and left forlorn
You are left on the cold ground of reality like a ragdoll, torn apart and feeling miserable

And the times keep changing, who ever thought they’d come so fast
A world dying of love, in a huge garden of empty souls
And it’s not your fault that true love just fell apart like that
You wonder “Why do lovers come and go?” and you don’t know
Will love survive, I hope so
Will love die, I don’t know
Can love flourish again, someday we’ll know
Why do lovers come and go?
We may never know...
We may never know...

Love is like the seasons in a way, I loved this.....
it should change but continue on....

Why, indeed? and so quickly too!   (couldn't resist!)

But yes, lost loves are something I know a little bit about and I could SO relate! Thank you again, for a thoughtful and bittersweet read.

Noah, I've been waiting to reply to this. . . I've read it a couply of times. . . hoping that you had an answer. . . but I see that you're as confused as the rest of us. . .

This is an excellent poem. . . and like serenity, I too can relate all too well. . .

I wish I knew the answer.  Maybe if it comes and goes it was really meant to be for if it was it would surely endure all, wouldn't it?  Very well expressed, Noah.  I, too, can relate to this.

If anyone ever gets the answer to this one be sure to let me know!  *w*  Well done Noah.   Perplexing question with no easy answer.  

On the wings of words our spirits fly, and our souls are free.
