Not Since You

Have I stopped to take in the spray of the surf or the scent of the salt air?

Have I relished the sound of rain on the roof, or a fireplace embers’ glow at night?

Have I cherished a lover’s touch or lingered over the bliss that only real love can give?

Not since you.

You were my safe haven; there to protect me from the world.  The night held no fear for me as long as you were by my side.  Can I face the sunrise with anticipation?  Or plan my tomorrows now?

Not since you.
