Without You

I woke up this morning,
So cynical and scared,
Unsure of the path ahead.

I cried in the shower,
Nearly drowning in fear,
Consumed by the weight in my heart.

I sat brooding at work,
The same as yesterday,
Hours of unfulfilled dreams.

I drove home after class,
Thoughts racing through my head,
Exhausted by life’s driving force.

I lay alone in bed,
Regretting all my mistakes,
Burdened by memory’s hold.

And as I drift towards sleep,
I remember your love,
Without you I would be without hope.
