staywithme

stay
tho I won’t beg you
one more story
might you tell
one more star
to catch me sleeping
where I fell

one and then
another –
I can’t promise
where they’ll end
til morning breaks –
and there I ask
again

please
and for another
might I give
of all I own
– or save my tears
for leaving lest you go

somewhere
near –
daylight creeps
across an empty bed
hearts prepare for keeping –
words we
left unsaid

. . .
