Will you stay with me, he asks
Am so sorry, I keep falling asleep
Just close your eyes, his hand in mine grows cold
I won’t leave you.
Please write this all down,
I want you to have my stories, he says
Just tell me and I will capture them, I promise
I will write every word.
Will you stay with me, the little child asks
I am afraid to close my eyes
Think of happy things, he kisses me goodnight
To chase away all the bad.
Will you stay with me, I would plead
I am scared of the thunder in the dark
I'm right here, he’d calmly say
This too shall pass.
I cannot stay with you, he whispers
I don’t want you to be afraid
Will you still see the things that matter, I ask
He smiles, I will find you from the other side.
