NaPoWriMo 2011 - Day 3

Day 3 - prompt: Write a poem about a world without you.

Without Me

In a world without me,
My sister would be an only child,
My parents spoiling her rotten.
She would have no one to play with,
No summers spent together,
No sharing, learning, growing
Of two sisters closer and closer.

In a world without me,
My husband might be single,
Finding his way alone,
No-one to lead him to this city on the coast.
No lazy mornings, warm smiles and kisses,
No building of a life together,
Of two halves making a whole.

In a world without me,
The Earth keeps turning,
People living their lives
Without me knowing,
Unable to participate
In the ups and down
Of the human race.

A world without me,
Is not this one.
