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
