I Wonder ... Why?
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/ aka Granny Gee
I sat outside on the porch in the sunshine
It was fall time, the evening cool
I was writing a letter to my friend
When I noticed my hair was shining
My hair was shining gold, it sparkled
I felt such happiness as I held a tress in my hand
I sat there for several moments before releasing it
I loved this moment... it was special
I walked into the house, sat down at my desk
I looked at the window and noticed
The sunshine shining through the white blind
making silhouettes on the opposite wall
There was a silhouette of the blind in detail
A silhouette of the flowers in a pot
I don't know why but....
This is a special moment to me, too
Through the years I've enjoyed such moments
I've been in different places when they occur
Nevertheless... I stop to marvel at how they affect me
Because my heart feels such a happiness
I wonder why... I wonder what about these moments
Affect me in such a special way
That I stop what I'm doing just so, I can
Enjoy them to the fullest, with happiness in my heart?
I wonder ...why?
