Why Ask Why?

By Alberta J.
Grade 10, South Carolina

I tell you I love you
I truly care for you
and I'll always be there for you.
So tell me why do you ask why?

Are my words not enough for thee?
Do I not amount up to thee?
I only love and cherish thee
So tell me why do you ask why?

To me you are only the best
Am I only just a pest?
Or are you just giving me a test?
So tell me why do you ask why?
