Like a flower without sun
Or a tree without water
When I live without your touch.
Like a brittle sandcastle to the sea
Or a ruin of old
When I live without your strength.
Like a record that’s been scratched
Or a train without rails
When I live without your guidance.
Like a forest in a fire
Or a house in a storm
When I live without your love.
It is you that completes me.
It is you that makes me whole.
It is you that perfects me.
It is you that soothes my soul.
And to live life without you
Is to love life no more
Because even in this short while
Your love’s shook me to my core.
And I no longer wither or crumble
Won’t falter or perish
Can’t be less than all I can be
All for the simple fact
That I now have you…with me.
