Life Without You (poem)

Oh I could live my whole life without you

It really won’t be that hard at all

The flowers have need of sparkling dew

And spring cold merely slip right into fall

-

Sure I could sleep my night without a dream

Or never taste the sweetness wonders bring

Dead leaves can’t hear the music of a stream

A hopeless candle doesn’t see a thing

-

But I could bear long seconds in abyss

As absence of tomorrows swirl around

No stairway to the stars for lovers’ kiss

Just rest from nothingness beneath the ground

-

Yes I could spend my days with you not near

As purpose for existence disappear

Very poignant, Martin. Yes, life goes on. But why live without love unnecessarily?

Life can be horrible sometimes, but there's always a purpose for our existence, the only difficulty is to find out what it is!
