I wrote this to my husband a few years ago. It was my walk through my life when he went through some health issue and I could have lost him. I wasn't ready to let him go and glad it didn't come to that.

Lyrics

Live Without You

When we were young and you were even younger
You were the new kid in town
Just looking for a friend, someone you could talk to
And I kept coming around

Just friends or maybe something more
Till that warm, breezy day
We walked down by the river and you pulled out a ring
And then I heard you say…

Chorus
I don’t wanna live without you, I don’t know what I’d do
When I look at my future I see you
I don’t wanna live without you, I don’t know what I’d do
I don’t wanna life on memories, I want you.

Now here we are, both a little older,
Smiling back at the years
Life has been beautiful; the journey’s been wonderful
From there to here.

But there’s a black cloud, shadow of the unknown
Hanging over our heads.
I need you to fight, we can face it together
Cuz I don’t want this journey to end.

Chorus

Bridge
I know you’re scared, I can see it in your eyes.
Won’t you let me be your strength this time?

Chorus
