I can't be without you...........by Rumi

I can be without anyone
but not without you.

You twist my heart, dwell in my mind
and fill my eyes, you are my joy
I can't be without you.

You are my sleep, my rest, the water I drink.
You are my clarity, my dignity, my world
I can't be without you.

Sometimes you are kind, sometimes
unfaithful...
you break my heart but
my love, my essence, do not go away
I can't be without you.

You are my head I am the feet
you are the hand, I am your banner
if you leave, I will perish
I can't be without you.

You have erased my image, taken my sleep
you've torn me away from everybody but
I can't be without you.

I find no joy in life or relief in death.
Why don't you say it too...
I can't be without you.
~ Rumi
