With Out You revised

Written by: JoanMarie Peranteau

Just as
The flowers wither
without the sunshine and rain
and without the winter cold
the snowman melts away

Just as
Without more wood
the fire will surely die
and without a cocoon
the caterpillar
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 shines no light 
when from its power source 
it has been unplugged
And without your dear friendship
without your precious love
Alas, oh my darling,
I am like all of the above
