It Isn'T Heaven Without You - Poem by Sara Stowell

Air, I once needed it to live.
I couldn’t survive without it.
I needed food and water as well,
They were also for my benefit.

I do not miss any of these.
Not one of life’s pleasures do I crave.
I don’t miss the weekends at the lake,
Or the hiking trips up to the cave.

I don’t miss one thing about life;
Except...I do yearn for you.
Not the physical bond we shared,
But the spiritual love that we knew.

Without you, I am incomplete.
As if I’d misplaced part of my heart.
And I shall not feel whole again,
While death keeps the two of us apart.

Heaven almost makes up for that,
Yet I cannot say what isn’t true.
Though it is more than paradise,
It isn’t Heaven without you.

*Note-Another sort of thought, took the situation I find myself in and switched it around a bit.
