Without you

RENT
Without You Lyrics

Without you
The ground thaws
The rain falls
The grass grows

Without you
The seeds root
The flowers bloom
The children play

The stars gleam
The poets dream
The eagles fly

Without you
The earth turns
The sun burns
But I die without you

Without you
The breeze warms
The girl smiles
The cloud moves

Without you
The tides change
The boys run
The oceans crash

The crowds roar
The days soar
The babies cry

Without you
The moon glows
The river flows
But I die without you

The world revives
But I know blue, only blue
Lonely blue
Without you

Without you
The hand gropes
The ear hears
The pulse beats

Without you
The eyes gaze
The legs walks
The lungs breathe

The mind churns
The heart yearns

The tears dry without you
Life goes on but I’m gone
‘Cause I die without you

Without you
Without you
Without you

This song rings so true. The world continues to turn life goes on but mine stopped. The me from before died with her.

Today has been bad. Grief attacks and flash backs out of no where. It’s like a slap to the face, wow my daughter is dead. She is really dead. D-E-A-D DEAD. I just can’t wrap my head around it still.

She was here.
I saw her.
I birthed her.
I held her.
She breathed.
She moved.
She lived.
And then she died.

And yet the world kept right on turning.
My child is gone and somehow I’m still here.
It’s amazing to me honestly.
You hear so often that you just must be so strong, if that happened to me I’d just die. I don’t take that as a compliment by the way. What choice do I have? I have to keep going. I have to keep living as hard as it is.
