Stay With Me

EER_0192 (2)

Stay with me and hold me close
While others fear and express their woes
Our promise was for better or for worse
*
Stay with me head to head
While others live in fear and dread
With you I will always make my bed
*
You stayed with me cheek to cheek
Through 50 years with weather bleak
And still it’s you my heart does seek
*
And if this time should be our last
As Covid  ravages // steals our gasp
Let me stay with you as life shall pass
*****
