I Can't

I can’t live without

the first scent of the fall breeze.

I can’t live without

stomach aches from laughing so hard

with my best friend when we haven’t seen

each other in such a while.

 

I can’t live without

the feeling I get when

I can make someone laugh

when they were on the verge of tears.

I can’t live without

the feel of cold like water on my skin

after a long day spent in the sun.

 

I can’t live without

daffodils.

I can’t live without

occasionally seeing the sun.

I can’t live without

also occasionally seeing some snow.

 

I can’t live without

her smile in the morning

when we’ve just woken up.

I can’t live without

the feel of her hands on my back

after a long day of aching.

I can’t live without

the sound of her laugh

after I’ve made some stupid joke.

 

I can’t live without

her loving embrace.

I can’t live without

her forehead kisses.

I can’t live without

being able to hold her hand in public.

 

I can’t live without knowing

she’ll always be there,

right by my side.
