Within

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

sought

 

Of that bare heart

within us

we offered without

thought

 

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.
