Life Without You (poem)

Updated on March 17, 2014

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

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

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