don’t leave me

don’t leave me
is all i ask
dance with me one last time
the honey of your embrace
don’t let me forget it
hold the moment
the snapshot of us
the same
don’t leave me
don’t even try
snatched onto you
until we collapse
exhausted from life
my friend
we were all at once
the oceans and the sky
don’t leave
oh, please
don’t leave us
