And I Shall Stay


Though you ask for me to leave,
Your eyes say I should wait,
These words shall not move me,
Please know that I won't stray.

Though the devil grasps with forces,
And I worry that I should be gone,
These fears they shall not sway me,
Please know that I'll stay on.

Though it is clear that you are sleeping,
While I lie wide awake,
I love that you are near me,
Please trust that I will stay.

Though I grow cold and you go weak,
And I turn, buried, under feet,
Trust that you are with me,
I'll stay although I'm gone.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
