Without You


The day goes by slow

The hours last too long

The minutes tick in place

When you're not near me


The birds don't sing

The sun doesn't shine

The flowers refuse to bloom

Without you by my side


The artists won't paint

The musicians will not sing

The performers won't act

When you're not with me


My laughs are half empty

My smiles are semi forced

I'm missing a part of me

Without you here
