I can hear the silence.
Sometimes deafening,
sometimes softly whispering.
It talks to me about the
peace on the other side.

Stay with me.
Don't go yet,
there are so many colours you haven't seen,
so many smells you haven't tasted.
Stay with me.

I can see the dark.
Sometimes comforting and dim,
sometimes unbwlievably bright.
It brings to me the invisibility
I am longing for.

Stay with me.
Don't go yet,
there are so many flowers you haven't painted,
so many lovers you haven't loved.
Stay with me.

I can touch the pain.
Sometimes as a sharp embrace,
sometimes as a constant drip.
It wakes me up,
and pushes me to live.

Stay with me.
Don't go yet,
there are so many poems you haven't written,
so many hearts you haven't touched.
Stay with me.

I can breathe your love.
Sometimes it carries tears for my eyes,
sometimes it draws smiles on my face.
It holds my heart and
sings lullabies long lost to me.

Stay with me.
Don't go yet,
there areso many words you haven't sang,
so many seas you haven't travelled.
Stay with me.
I love you.
I will set you free.
