WITHOUT

A sailor without a tattoo
An actor who missed his cue
So am I today
So am I without you

A garden that never grew
A wind that never blew
Empty of all meaning
So am I without you

A tiger caged at a zoo
A lawyer with no one to sue
Counting all I've lost
These things I am too

A ship without a crew
A church without a pew
A man without purpose
So am I without you

Not exactly a serious piece of verse (despite the oh-so-serious message!) but more a bit of play with words. This probably could have been developed in a song direction, had I been inspired to do so...but I doubt it would have been a particularly good one.
