Without Your Love, a Poem to Help You Say "Thank You"

Without Your Love, a Poem to Help You Say "Thank You"

"Without your love... I would miss so much life." If there's someone you want to thank for what they've given you, read this short love poem. It's for them and all the life they bring into your life. All the pain they've helped you through, the hope they've helped you find again.

“If not for you, the winter would hold no spring.” – Bob Dylan

Without Your Love

You’ve painted a pattern

That rearranged it all.

With you,

I am in a valley underneath heaven;

There is nowhere I would fall.


You soften the edges,

Help me untie the knots,

Make it safe for me

To bear my losses.

With you,

I surrender my shadows;

At once they’ve lost their grip,

And they fall away.


Whatever I do

Is your doing, too,

For in my heart you stay.

Each step I take

Has in it your name,

And I’d walk no other way.

In this way,

I would be with you without end.


With you,

Life opens up its doors;

Forgiveness comes easier

And I can do more.

You’ve laid a carpet

Underneath my feet,

For you are my friend

And I tread now softly.


With you,

It’s safe to hear the robin sing;

I am not paralyzed by the sting

That comes with each spring.

Since you,

Beauty has made itself known,

And there is nowhere I would roam

Without your love.

For nothing you’ve said or done

Will ever matter as much

As the way you’d have me feel

When I’m with you.

. . .
