Within the world

we wandered

and walked without

a care


Within our hearts

we reached

and opened them

so they were bare


Within ourselves

we wondered

at what the other



Of that bare heart

within us

we offered without



And so within our love

without the world

we left behind


Without a backward glance

we closed the door and

drew the blind


And deep within each other

we put our trust and fears

and then discovered real love

is not without its tears


And so without you

now I live within my memories


The tears within my eyes will stay

I’ll live without love, please.
