Lyrics of Why--?

Your eyes sparkled like jewels
As you looked up to the sky
Your presence warmed me like the sun
Whenever I would come by

I could feel the affection,
the gratitude, and the love
What you had was meant for me
Not the stars above

Together we would grow.

Your heart was like a gentle pond
So clear and never dark
And when you spoke to me
Your voice was as sweet as a meadowlark

You took me under your wing just when
My life had become a storm
I had entered the serenity of your soul
Where your heart had kept me warm

Together we would grow.

And you never judged me
You were never lewd
I had felt so welcomed
And never one to intrude

I can still feel the affection,
the gratitude, and the love
What we had was meant for us
Not the stars above

Together we would grow.

I was high as if on a mountaintop
So sure together we would grow
But oh how fast we have departed
Why? I will never know

Now I'm sitting on this mountaintop
Just thinking about the past
What went wrong with our lives together
And why it wasn't meant to last

Asking "why" to the stars above
The answer I may never know
As my mountain begins to crumble
and fall to the valley below
