I cannot begin to imagine.....

Life would be so different.
Days would feel so long.
The nights would be so dark and cold.
My heart would be so broken.
My world would be so empty.
I would feel so lonely.

....how my life would be without you by my side!

There are no words that can describe how I feel about you.

The only thing that comes to mind is..

So real, so true, so me and you!!!!
