IMITATION OF LIFE
what is love without the giving,
without love you're only living an imitation,
an imitation, of life.
skies above in flaming color without
love they're so much duller,
a false creation an imitation of life.
would the song of a lark sound half as sweet
would the moon be as bright above.
every day would be grey and incomplete
without the one you love.
lips that kiss can tell you clearly
without this our lives are merely
an imitation an imitation of life.
