If I Didn’t Have You

If I didn’t have you
your presence always with me
your song in my heart
your sun in my eyes

If I didn’t have you
in these tumultuous times
of illness and insecurity

My words would have no source
and would have nowhere to go
My days would lack the music
My feet would have no reason to dance

For if I didn’t have you
I wouldn’t have the bright light
of love in my heart that,
no matter how dark the darkness,
shines me through it
