Life Without You

Me without you,
is like a leafless fall,
a snowless winter,
and a flowerless spring.

Me without you,
is like a colorless rainbow,
a sunless day,
and a starless night.

Me without you,
is like the ocean without a wave,
the beach without sand,
and a flameless fire.

Me without you,
is like a book without words,
a man without a face,
and a child with no name.
