Do Not Leave Me!
By Lisa Noe
There is a chance that you may have to leave,
Can’t stand thoughts of being separated.
I cried so that I have ruined your sleeve.
These are the bad thoughts that I have hated.
They will take you away for many years,
There is nothing that we can say or do.
That is why my eyes are filled with such tears.
My heart will ache while I am missing you.
You’re the person I love more than the rest,
You always have been my heart throbbing man.
I lay my head upon your darling chest,
I am your biggest, most adoring fan.
I will just die if they take you away,
In this very moment my heart feels frayed.
