Treasure Island

David Whalen

(5/18/38 / Covington Kentucky)

I'll Stay...


I’ll stay for as long
as you’ll have me
At least as long
as you have need

Until the time comes
that you no longer need me
And bid me farewell
And Godspeed

E’en when I’ve gone
I’ll still be close by
In the flowers, in the wind…
In the Autumn leaves.

So if you should ever
Have need of me…Again
Open your window
And let in the breeze
