A life lived for me

i have been fine without you before
i woke up and went 24 hours without a thought of you entering my mind
i have fallen asleep and went a whole night without a dream of you and i playing in the night sky
i have accomplished huge things without your help
i have made huge mistakes without your input
i have molded myself for years without your hands
i laughed
was joyful
was free
was myself
was without you
i walked and ran and enjoyed the sunshine of the world that i illuminated
without you
that's who i was
