Stay With Me

I’m keeping this one short because…well, because I’ve got a 2-hour drive to make to Sunyani from Kumasi this morning. It’s 2:00am now, but commitments are Commitments and I’m not starting 2015 by breaking one such as this. We’re starting with an original piece I’m only just finishing now – Poetry is the Music of the Soul… All for #TeleTuesdays  😉

 

Pick me O sweetheart pick me.

I know I’m not your first, but pick me

You didn’t dream of me, or even wish for me

But in my heart of hearts

I know you’ll love me

pick

 

Choose me sweetheart, choose me

I know you’re spoilt for choice, but choose me

Though your card is full, and you’ve never thought of me

You’ll be the answer to my dreams

So choose me

choix

Love me O darling, love me

I’ve never deserved as much, but love me

I push you away at times, and cause you to think twice

But still I need you more and more

To love me

truce

Stay with me O love, stay with me

I know the other grass is greener, but stay with me

The other ways seem brighter, and I don’t seem much better

But this Grass loves and needs you better

Stay with me.

stay

    I’ll stay with you..that, i will but you have to promise me one thing;
    that you’ll let me hold your hand
    you’ll let me see your tears
    you’ll trust me with your smile
    you won’t push me away
    when all i wanna do is stay…
    and if your fear my dear
    is that i won’t stay…i promise you i will 🙂
    I love #Tele Tuesdays
