The Element of Love
by Elle Kimberly Schmick
Without you? I'd be a soul without a purpose.
Without you? I'd be an emotion without a heart.
I'm a face without expression,
A heart with no beat.
Without you by my side,
I'm just a flame without the heat.
Without you? I'd be a dream without an impetus.
Without you? I'd be a thought without a mind.
I'm a picture without color,
A sky with no sun.
I need you here beside me,
Because you're my loving one.
Without you? I'd be a wave without an ocean.
Without you? I'd be a bird without wings.
I'm a song without sound,
A moon with no shine.
I want you here, darling,
To tell me you'll always be mine.
You promise that you'll love me forever;
I trust what you say is true;
Because if I'm to be an emotion of love,
The element I need is you.
