Why Can'T I Love Him?

Ever since she left
All I did was weep and cry
Ever since I met him
All I do is swoon and sigh

Why can't I love him
as I did her?
I love our time together.
But she was my treasure.

He makes me feel
ten feet tall.
But with her there
was no limit at all.

Why can't I love him
as I did her?

She left me
and I crumbled.
His strong arms hold me up
as I stumbled.

His eyes are gray blue.
Her eyes were hazel with a
golden hue.

I love him, I do.
But thoughts of her
make me blue.

Our feelings were mutual.
But she left to reach happiness
that was...financial.

He has a big ego.
She was humble.
But her feelings for me
would soon fumble.

I know what you must think.
'Go to him, foreget her.'

I feel the same way.
But when I think of her.
I think
Why can't I love him as I did her?
