Stay with me, she said.
Before you take this joy and run
to a world, of forgetting…

In this moment, stay —
Keep me with you, she told me,
And celebrate this life.

Revel in the romance
we share, before eyes wander
Into a passing dream,

Falling sleepily in a trance
of punch drunk thought
And hangovers that follow.

Remember, that i rose up
From the flowers, before i ever
dripped as honey from the hive.
