Stay With Me (Collab)

by End Of Eternity   Mar 1, 2007

Dedicated to Cindy Graver's husband John F. Graver Sr.
Dec 12, 1958 - March 10, 2001


You said we would stay together
We'd always walk side by side
Yet you have left me here alone
All these tears for you I've cried

Open your eyes and look around
Right next to your lonely shadow
I've been here since my body left
How could I have ever let you go?

Trying to keep up with you
You walked way too fast for me
My life on earth yet incomplete
With you gone my world is empty

Time stood still for me like my heart
Our dreams couldn't turn to reality
Though we can't touch anymore
You know, you've got to live for me

When your heart stopped,so did I
How I miss the touch of your hands
Feelings of being held in your arms
Living without you I can't stand

Feel me from these frames on wall
Speak to me every night and day
Your love for me would never fall
As within your arms forever I'll stay

Until the day you come for me
Please stay with me in my heart
Let me feel your love again
Keep me from falling apart

Your heartbeats are breaths i take
Your tears just pass my lips by
Touch your heart to feel my love
Flow with destiny, never ask why?

This poem is a woman trying to talk to her dead husband not knowing if he can hear her. He is speaking back but she can not hear what he says. True love never dies but lives forever in our hearts.
