As I watch the two of you together

Wondering if it will last forever


I ask myself "What did he do?"

To win the heart of someone like you


Was it something about his face

That made your pulse start to race


Was it something in his eyes

That gave your heart a delightful surprise


Could it have been in his voice

That now makes your heart rejoice


Was it the way he held your hand

That made you see he was the man


Or was it something in his kiss

That made you realize what you miss


Let me guess, just maybe

It was his personality


Clothes, money, cars, those shallow material things

Are they the reason you now wear his ring


Oh such a lucky man is he

To have won your love totally


From afar, I give him my best

For he passed all your tests


Like an actor playing his best part

He won the award for your heart


Yes, of all of these questions I ask of you

the one still remains: "What did he do?"

Very, very sweet...and much more than that...there is something deep and Shakespearian here...and I adore Shakespeare. You ask a very important question...so plainly and yet so...what can I say...poetically. Do you have a book of love poems out, Starpoet? Because I would rush the bookstores to buy it...and I would give it to all my women friends as gifts...and to a few men as well. The word that come to mind when I read your works is 'delight'. I'm sure as I read through more of them, many more feelings will surface. Thank you!

StarPoet Unique write, and its cadence are excellent. I thought of many past love affairs that got away while reading this poem. Never really asked those questions, when one got away. It had to be something much superior to what I had possessed, than just a falling out of love thing. Interesting, something to contemplate for even an Elder of past love affairs...that ended without an understanding. Excellent! Luqman Qadi

When you see a couple together you sometimes wonder not only how they came together but what was the feelings and emotions that attracted them to each other. These are questions I ask myself when I see a couple together. But I really pose this question to the woman. And in this poem, I try to answer it. Also this poem goes out to we men who thought we had the love of a woman, only to lose it to someone else.
