Life is Lifeless

I never imagine life

Without you by my side

I will be like …

Gloomy skies that refuse to smile

Clouds tearing up in the horizon

A lifeless sun that has stopped shining

Waves that stopped kissing the seashore

Hostile wind that stings

Flowers that lose their scent

Butterflies with their broken wings

A bird that hesitates to fly

Rainbows in their pale and dim colors

A compass that fails to give direction

Mornings that do not give way to the nights

A clock deprived of time


Life without you by my side

Would be lifeless……
