Without You - Poem by Kevin East
I could bathe in the moonlight shimmer
But drown in crazed shadows- without you.
And watch a white dove ride the surf
But lose it in the sun.
Could muse in fields of summer rain
Bereft of heaven's scent, without you
Stand and watch stars collide
Yet be void of the thrill.
I may kiss the breeze
Only to die on the wind
I could view sunset serenity
Only seeing cruel storm threaten.
Float on the music of an angel
Yet without you sink in monotone hum.
I could dance across a sun kissed meadow
But without you fall crippled into the darkest night.
I would laugh with you in life's arena
Yet without you cry alone in cold corridor.
I could close my hands around the beauty of your smile
But without you they would open forever empty.
Our souls would touch on hissing summer night
But without you stand solo in only winter's arms.
I could fly with the freedom of the migrant flock
Yet without you suffer the chains of the aged
Then would walk down empty streets
-And without you just keep walking.
