Without You

Without you things seem bland
There is no pizzazz

Without you
There is less fun
There’s an emptiness

Without you
I am missing part of me
The sun isn’t as bright

Without you
The moon loses its luster
The stars don’t glitter

Without you
The ocean isn’t the same
The city seems dull

Without you
The apartment is empty
My heart hurts

Without you
I am not me
Life isn’t as sweet

Without you
