'Without You' - Poem by Bernard Snyder

The love songs I used to sing for you
now just seem like shattered words,
the white doves that followed us along the beaches
now seem like ordinary birds,
the sunshine doesn't seem as bright anymore
the moonlight seem to have lost it's glow,
the ocean I once thought was so smooth and romantic
now has an unusual flow,
the raindrops we used to listen to
no longer has that pleasant tone,
nothing seems to be what it used to
since you've been gone,
I've tried everything I could think of
but nothing's the same without you
I just want to enjoy the beautiful things in life again
the way you and I once used to.

    Lovely poem. I enjoyed the diction and the rhythm of the poem. The theme, ' How beautiful life can be if we are there for each other: -) is silently moving in the background of natural landscape'. (Report) Reply

    love always heads in a different direction we want to take and the hurtful part is that it always leave us hurting as we meet those things that we always used to see when we used to enjoy it thus 'the raindropp we used to listen, no longer have that pleasant tone.' (Report) Reply
