Like the ocean needs the moon,
without you I cannot move.
One day without you
is like spring
with no Bluebonnets –
endurable, but without majesty.
Imagine life without music,
and you know how I feel.
A future without your laugh
will leave me unfulfilled.
With all the voices in the world,
I will always listen for yours,
for a library filled with books
is just a lounge
without Tolstoy on its shelves.
Like a woodwind and its reed,
My voice projects only wind
without the confidence you give
each time you reassure.
or teeth bared,
sends tingles dancing up my spine.
A feeling I dare not live without,
even if you will never be mine.
from Little Bird
