You are my everything:
Husband, friend, strongest supporter.
You smile when I walk by,
Cheer me on when I sing
Encourage me to write
Without ever reading a word
Without you I would be just a shell
A woman adrift amidst a sea of faces
Just one of many invisible people
Scrambling for recognition.
Without you I would be lonely,
Not just at night,
But throughout each and every day.
I’d have to relearn how to stand on my own,
To negotiate the world of shopping, cooking,
Tending things about the house.
But more importantly, how to move on.
My life would change in so many ways.
Although we spend hours simply being together,
I’d miss knowing that you were sitting in the chair,
Reading or watching television.
I’d miss our evening walks, lunches out,
Going to the movies and the theater.
All the things we do together.
I’d be a different person,
Someone I once knew, but lost years ago.
I don’t want to go back to her.
I love the person who is loved by you.
