Without You Comments

Rating: 3.8
Without you every morning would feel like going back to work after a holiday,
Without you I couldn't stand the smell of the East Lancs Road,
Without you ghost ferries would cross the Mersey manned by skeleton crews,
Without you I'd probably feel happy and have more money and time and

Absolute pants! Without You...good grief. Without you... Without you my bicycle has just been struck by lightning. Without you I can hear fresh paint dry. Without you I have to flush the toilet. Without you the pixies are after the marmalade.

Agree it is absolute rubbish. Formula-written nonsense. You could compose additional lines yourself ad nauseam. 'Without you the moon would just be a yellow circle' or somesuch dross.

The world is a poorer place now that Adrian Henri is gone to his maker. He was a poet who had found the Infinite Eternal Truth; to find someone who fills every nook and cranny of your world is what makes life worth living. I wish I had met him before he died!

Without you they'd forget to change the weather thats a good line. I would have never thought of that. *Purkey Girl*

This is one of my favourite poems, it simply resonates in my soul. I love the touch of humour with the depth of despair and yearning coming through under that blase front. I feel this poem and that is the highest form of praise I am capable of bestowing.

its quite nice, however there are things he mentions that would stop without 'you' and i dont think this is the case... the most irritating line in the poem for me is: 'Without you Mothers wouldn't let their children play out after tea' No they wouldnt because they dont know you, so it wouldnt be such a great lost for them.... By far NOT my favourite.....

This has been my favourite poem since I first read it at the age of 18. I think it is very moving, giving a real feel for how he would feel if his love left him My favourite line is: Without you every street is one way the other way.
