I’ll Stay

I’ll hold your hand
when your family’s not here,
to comfort your death during
this quarantine my dear.

I know you don’t understand
what this lock-down has done,
you’re simply confused and scared
my sweet demented one.


But one visitor a day
is all that’s allowed,
and sadly you’ll get none
for the fear that surrounds.


So lay down your head
and close those tired eyes,
I’ll stay here with you
til your final goodbye.

Let Me

Let the undertow
take me,
sweeping away
my sins…

Let the waves
crash around me,
smothering from
within…

Let me fill
up my lungs,
as I come
up for air…

Let me know
I’ll survive,
as long as
you are there.
