If Not For You

If Not For You long poem

Photo by Inchka


Well we may not be together tonight
But you are here in my heart…
No and don’t think I ever, ever take
You for granted…
I thank God every day and every night
For all the blessings you’ve brought
Into my life…
Well and we may not talk everyday
But when we do we talk the hours
Away, never running out of things
To say…
Although you are several hundred
Miles away we always seem to find
A way to get together and get away
Three or four quarters a year and it’s
Just like magic everywhere, magic in
The air every time, every time I see
Your smiling face I know, I just know
This love affair will never grow old…
I break down and cry when you come,
I break down and cry when you go
I know it’s not forever, no I know
Someday we will be together forever
‘cuz If Not For You I would be lost
to say the least, I would be incomplete
If Not For You I wouldn’t know love
like I do…
Oh no, no I wouldn’t know love
like I do, If Not For You and me
thank God every night for all the
blessings you’ve brought into my
life ‘cuz where in the world would
I be If Not For You, If Not For You!

The tears were walking along with laughter. My face was roasted. The fish-men were moving the political wheels. As the chaos was widening, the humming birds started to depart. And the seeds were catching fire from anonymous snipers. The candle
