My Senses

 

 

              

              

         Since I've been away from you

Some things just don't need to  be
I find that all my senses are now useless to me
Because if I can't see you 
Why do I need to see?
If I can't hear you
Why do I need to hear ?
If I can't smell you
Why do I need to smell?
If I can't touch you  
What else is there to touch?
If I can't taste you
Why would I want to taste?
Without you in my life and close to me
My five senses are a waste.
