Who am I without you?

Who is a king without a crown? Or a great music performer without a listening audience A cocktail party without cheerful guests? What is beauty without a beholder? A work of art without an admirer? What is wealth without none to share? A joke , a story without no one to hear and laugh? And what is life without no one to live with? Who am I without you? My eyes without your sight My mouth without your ears? My heart, without your fond memories and living thoughts My existence without your presence and absence Who am i without you? For I am, because you are. (This poem expresses the oneness and interrelatedness of the human race; in Swahili: Ubuntu, It is Ujamaa)
