An ode is a lyrical poem that expresses strong feeling or sentiment for someone or something.
So when I say I don’t want to live without you, that qualifies?
Or, do I have to make it pretty, and dress it up with rhyme and meter
So that it becomes both something more…and less
Than it was before, when I said it all in one sentence?
There are very, very few things humans can’t live without.
Air, water, and curiously, sleep – where dreams rule.
And yes, you are that essential to me.
