Bronze Star - 2,729 Points (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

Without You

You're the beacon that lights my way,
Reassurance replacing my doubt;
My cheerful sunshine burning bright,
But now that light has gone out

You're the song that guides my steps,
The rhythm that keeps perfect time;
But now I can't seem to hear the beat,
And the words no longer rhyme

You're the hope I draw upon
When I wake to a troubling dawn;
But lately, I've seen you withdrawing,
Now my hope is all but gone

I've watched you fading from my life,
But I couldn't admit what I knew;
Now I stand on the brink of reality...
What will I do without you!

    This comes across as a spiritual poem but then again it could be about
    a person being distant and moving away?
    Whatever a well put together poem. (Report) Reply
