The Other Half

If you leave,

What will be left of me?

Because you are,

My other half that completes me.

The sun that shines through my window every morning.

The air I breathe that soothes my body.

The water I drink to quench my thirst.

The vitamins I consume to gain strength.

The sweetness in my cake.

The soap I use to wash out the stress of the day.

The blanket that keeps me warm at night.

You are everything I need to survive in this world. 

My inspiration to live ...

So if you leave,

What will it be of me?
