What will I do without you?


What will I do without you?
What can I say that's not been said?
We tried our best, but it was futile,
I wanted love, but lost my head.

And you lost yours, don't say you didn't,
We called a truce, but it was a war;
I don't wish to be in battle,
That isn't what love is or for.

What will I do without you?
I have left you standing in the rain;
But I had to leave, don't you see?
I was a casualty of your great pain.

I'm sure you felt the same of me,
Love's not a one-way street;
But bruised and battered as we are,
it's better we don't meet.

What will I do without you?
I won't weep or whine;
Here's what I'll do without you,
...I''ll do just fine.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
