Love Without You

How can I live my life
without you?

What is my value
if I have none
with you?

Who will I love
if I can not
love you?

Why does love so often
end in this way?
Lonely and blue.

How can I love you...
without you?

This poem is so blue  

I guess you'll just have to learn to live without her, James. It may be difficult at first, but slowly you'll forget her... her hair, her eyes, her nose, her mouth, her face, and you'll forget the way she moved, the way she talked, etc....

You'll forget her, but it'll take lotsa time. But while you're going through this unbearable period, you'll have your friends. They will stand by you always. You can write too, and we will listen through your writing, what you want us to know. So, don't be sad, dear. It'll slowly heal...

**big hugs** My heart goes out to you, sweet James...I know just how painful it is. I pray it will not be long before another love can wipe your pain away. **big hugs**

Love I leave with you whether it is in your life now or yet the essense of your dreams.

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh James, this is so so sad, my heart goes out to you, for I know how hard it must be to wait for new love to come after another heart is broken!
(sad sigh) True ove will come, sweet friend, and it will swep you off your feet into eternity! (sigh) My heart is with you, sweet friend! (big huggssssss) You have such a beautiful heart, sweet James, thank you for sharing!

May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Awww so sad.
We must realize we do have worth even when we are alone...no ESPECIALLY when we are alone. The other person is only added to our lives to make it sweeter, but on our own we must learn to be complete.

Thank you Mon Cherie, Irish Rose, Startime, Noah, Jenn, Danzi and Sandra for the beautiful responses...
Each of us have our own way of letting go and dealing with the loss of love, of dreams and hopes and desires...basically we just do the best that we can...
We gain our freedom and limitless new opportunities...James

AND what YOU are today my friend....

How can I love you...
without you?

Very true James. Sometimes, itís just time to move on. After a suitable period of mourning for the heart she stole of course!!

If she who dies with the most toys wins, then can I have some toy boys please?

So sad, James.  It is never easy to be set free when that is far from what we want to begin with.  I am with Kathleen, just keep writing it out, my friend.  

All writing comes
by the grace of God.
