Thank you

How is it that the sky can shine bright?
That the moon can be full
Yet I’m not there with you
The birds all sing
The crickets chirp
Yet I do not hold your hand
Smiles of joy surround me
Yet I cannot feel the same
There’s no warmth to be had
No chill to be seized
No mind to make up
It’s hard to take new steps
There’s no ground to see
My sight
My whole being
It’s all left me
How is it that I can breathe?
My air is gone
My heart beats
Yet it’s broken
How is it that I live?
When my reason has disappeared
How is it that I smile?
When for some reason I might not be the one
Yet the answers become so clear
My very reason for being
The very air I breathe
It you
It’s your happiness
It’s your smile
Your laugh that brings me joy
It’s like you’ve bought me a bundle of toys
My broken heart quickly mends
And it’s for you
Only you
The chill disperses
The warmth envelopes me
And all this even when you’re not here
It’s your love that keeps me strong
That gives me the will to keep on
So to you and only you
I give my heart and soul to you
Thank you

so sweet and meaningful :) but anyway i think you should either take the last line or add a line ending in a word that rhymes with you because personally i dont like when you rhyme a word with the same word,, but it's just my opinion

keep writing! good job!

I liked this! However, there were some things I would change. The line, "It you" should be "it's you." Also, the second to last line, I think would be better if you cut off the "you" at the end. Having all those you's at the end seem repetitive and to change it up, it would be better if that one wasn't there since it would still work. I also think maybe some punctuation would be nice to add to this, just so it would flow and read better. Other than that, I think this was pretty good. Nice work :)
