Must You Be So Beautiful?


 

.

Must you be so beautiful

Must your eyes be blue

Must their pupils widen

When I look at you?

.

Must you stand so near to me

Must I smell your skin

Must you be here now, if

We can’t meet, again?

.

Must the years that came between

Must the time that’s passed

Must the choices made then

Melt away so fast?

.

Must have been we were too young

Must have not yet known

Must be no one told us

What we’d know when grown

.

Must a feeling’s memory

Motionless in time

Must a need yet unmet

Search for words that rhyme?

.

Must we be so dutiful

Must the things we say

Must their trust belie us

Must we walk away?

.
