Life Without You

There’s no me
Without you 

There was you
Before me

There’s me
Because of  you

There’s me
But there’s no more you

Looking over my shoulder
Watching me get older

Buying my favourite things
Guiding me through everything

Teaching me to be strong
Scolding me when I’m wrong

Taming me everyday
To the woman I am today

Life’s been tough
Without you

I never imagined life
Without you

Now I have to live life
Without you
