Never could I.....say goodbye


If I were to leave today,

Would you in sadness, cry?

If I, in my darkest hour reached for you,

Would you recoil in terror?

Or would you hold me by your side?

 If I were to reach out,

 and embrace the night,

Would you insist that I not give up,

But persevere

 and seek the light?

How would I know?

If I were indeed,

free to go,


If I be bound by the chains of your mind.

And the love of your soul,

How then,

 how could I

 say goodbye?


For I am

Forever still

In love,

With thee.

And even

If darkness calls

I will not answer

Its ring.

For you and I,

Will always
