This time next year, you will wonder why you hadn't started today.

Without you, I'm not me.
The warm summer breeze is like your breath touching me.
You're everywhere at once
All around me
I can't tell you how grateful I am that you found me.
It's quiet now and the sky is blue Each bird chirping reminds me of you,
How you tell me who I am,
who I'm not,
and who I want to be.
With out you, I'm not me.
The ocean water,
as cold as the truth you speak
The sand and shells under my feet The waves are like a hug from you Every Time they pull back, their saying it's through
I lose my balance and fall on the shore
In deep realization that I cant think these thoughts anymore
I immerse my self beneath the water
And think about things my father told me As a little girl:
he can't be your world if you can't be his.
But he is my world I contradict The air I breath
The songs I sing
The things I hear
Every tear
The scars on me
The blood I bleed
Every waking second
I'm not asleep.
But then again,
he is just a friend
And that he will stay
Tomorrow, today ,in every way
No longer to say with out you I am not me
For I am me with or without you I'm still me if I doubt you
I'm not gonna roundabout you
From here on out this is through Because I am still me without you

I wrote this after my best friend was deeply affected by a break up, and her situation just kind of inspired me.
