I Know They Will Deny If I ask The Questions?

02 Mar I Know They Will Deny If I ask The Questions?

They celebrated her birthday without her people, I could do nothing but remain numb to my feelings

As I asked myself so many rhetorical questions?

They decided on the best day for them and their family and friends

They made an endless list of what food and drinks that will be served

They wrote a list of who will be invited amongst their family and friends

They discussed and decided on what presents to buy for him

The many questions that were left un answered were drumming in my brain

They did not involve me, this I know they will deny if I ask the questions?

 

They celebrated her birthday without his people, I could do nothing but remain numb to my feelings

As I asked myself so many rhetorical questions?

I saw them send invitations to a list made by them

I saw and heard them endlessly confirm attendance and exact numbers

I heard them discuss more about the day that I was looking forward to

I saw the things that they bought for the celebration as they were happy

What could it have cost them just to involve my people in planning for the celebrations too?

This I know they will deny if I ask the questions?

 

They celebrated her birthday without her people, I could do nothing but remain numb to my feelings

As I asked myself so many rhetorical questions?

The day finally came and they were all in the celebrating mood

They put up all decorations and food and drinks all set and await their invited guests

The doorbell went crazy as their visitors streamed in their numbers

Their people kissed, hugged amidst the celebratory mood

Their people gave out presents, some outshining others, what a performance that was

I could not help but wonder, did they not notice that his people were not there?

They too have joined their own and cannot realise that we all need to be one

They did not utter a single word about it, this I know they will deny if I ask the questions?

 

They celebrated her birthday without her people, I could do nothing but remain numb to my feelings

As I asked myself so many rhetorical questions?

They ate and drank merry, catching up on different things that they did together

They left when the celebrations were over, eagerly awaiting for the next to come

They will celebrate it again without her people, for they never asked about them

My people have lost in the celebration but I know they have not lost their love

For in their hearts they remember her and will forever continue to do so

I shall not ask any more questions for a wise fool said silence is the best weapon

For if I ask, this they will deny if I ask the questions?
