Would you stay? Just a little while longer.
Must you leave me right now?
Would you let me feel your gentle touch
Before I can feel it no more.
And your beautiful lullaby voice.
Won’t you sing me one more song?
Leave me with a memory. of you.
Not one of the things I miss
Because I do not. ever. Want to miss
You. No.
Instead I want to remember
And smile.
Not cry because you are not here, but to
Be happy because you were here when I needed you to be.
Because you made me laugh
When the tears fell from my eyes.
Because you held me close when I felt
And because of you, I can now go on
Without you.
But until then, before you leave,
Will you hold me in your arms and tell me a story?
