the reason for living,
the reason for being,
my love for you is complete.

my heart rent asunder,
the day you were taken,
from the love and security, you enjoyed.

to a stranger's house,
to a stranger’s bed,
to the reason for despair.

tried to reason,
tried to talk,
tried everything, did my best.

all those who cared,
all those who declared, “What of Adam”
did there bit too

with claims of love
with claims of joy
with claims of being happy there

i hear the longing
i see the confusion
i experience the clinging and not wanting to go

and all i can do
is turn to the heavens
and declare “WHY ADAM?
