'Without You'

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.

    here
    on this earth
    o love
    everything goes on as usual
    by natural
    but I'm alone
    though in crowd
    can't scream out
    speak loud
    cause without you
    here I'm into me no truth!

    Beautiful flow of words painted with colors of pain. Seasons have changed yet memories of sweetness still remains. That's is what called life. Beautiful poem. Loved reading it.

    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'.
