If Not

By Tony DeLorger © 2012



If not for you,

life would be bland,

pearls would be dull,

and diamonds just sand.



Skies would have endings,

of brooding cold grey,

and flowers without sun,

would just sag and dismay.



Colours would cease,

and rolling hills become mounds,

all green less and barren,

no bird songs resound.



Without you I feel empty,

my heart less of intent,

and the love that I feel,

with no expression to vent.



If not for you,

I'd not know who I am,

not feel my potential,

nor deliver on demand.



My dreams would be careless,

and my hopes all denied,

my life could not realise,

without you by my side.


It's not that I need you,

to survive this parade,

its more that I want you

beside me to stay.



You are my home.
