Please Stay

What if you left me today?

Would today still be as good as yesterday when you were with me?

 

What if you weren’t with me yesterday?

Would I still feel as lonely as I do today?

 

What if I didn’t come and talk to you

On that day when I discovered

Your name?

Would I still be spending my days wishing I did?

 

When you are away,

I cannot help but think

That this is what it will feel like years from now

When you move on away,

But I am begging the future to please

Let you stay.

 

Then I would ask myself

If you left me today,

Would I still be alive as I was yesterday?

And I would say

Not in the same way.
