Without you

Just as
the flowers wither
without the sunshine and rain
and with no winter cold
the snowman melts away

Just as
without more wood 
the fire will surely die
and without a cocoon
the catterpillar will not
become a butterfly

Just as 
the trees loose their leaves
when summer turns to fall
and ears that turn deaf
cannot hear the birds morning song

Just as
the electric lamp has no light
when it is unplugged
and without your friendship 
without your love
Alas, I am like all of the above
