More of Nikki
  The World is Not Pleasant Place
               To Be
 The world is not a pleasant place to be with
  someone to hold and to be held by
A river would stop its flow if only a stream
  were there to receive it
An ocean would never laugh if clouds
  weren’t there to kiss her tears
The world is not a pleasant place to be
  without someone here
