Without You - Poem by Ayesha Sartawi

I am a root delving through the earth at night time
I am a leaf thirsting for that first raindrop
I am a branch reaching out for sunshine
I am a tree longing to be caressed by the breeze

Without you I am
a bird with no nest
without you I am lost
bewildered and obsessed
Without you I am
words with no melody
without you I am heartbeats
with no symphony

Without you
I am the sea rushing to meet the shore
I am the moon searching for its core
I am a human reaching for a glowing star
The higher I jump the further away you really are
