Without You

Without you every morning would feel like going back to work after a holiday, 
Without you I'd probably feel happy and have more money and time and nothing to do with it, 
Without you plastic flowers in shop windows would just be plastic flowers in shop windows, 
Without you Mothers wouldn't let their children play out after tea, 
Without you every musician in the world would forget how to play the blues, 
Without you there'd be no colour in Magic colouring books, 
Without you they'd forget to put the salt in every packet of crisps, 
Without you there'd be no one to kiss goodnight when we quarrel, 
Without you they'd forget to change the weather, 
Without you there would be 
no landscapes/no stations/no houses 
no chipshops/no quiet villages/no seagulls 
on beaches/no night/no morning/ 
there'd be no city no country 
Without you.

  1. Look at love,how it tangles with the one fallen in love;
    look at spirit, how it fuses with earth giving it new life...

    Why are you so busy with this or that or good or bad;
    Pay attention to how things blend..

    Why talk about all the known and the unknown;
    See how the unknown merges into the known..

    Why think separately of this life and the next;
    When one is born from the last..

    Look at your heart and tongue;
    One feels but deaf and dumb,the other speaks in words and signs..

    Look at water and fire, earth and wind;
    Enemies and friends all at once..

    The wolf and the lamb, the lion and the deer;
    Far away yet together..

    Look at the unity of this spring and winter;
    Manifested in the equinox..

    You too must mingle my friends;
    Since the earth and the sky are mingled just for you and me...

    Be like sugarcane, sweet yet silent
    Don't get mixed up with bitter words..

    My beloved grows right out of my own heart;
    How much more union can there be..
