"Because you meant what you said when you said you would never leave."
I think for a second, and decide that's true.
whether in a gentle hug from the wind
or a sweet kiss from the rain.
You never leave us as long as we live.
"So what than? What about when out lives end?"
"That's when I take you with me."
I turned and ran, fighting tears all the way.
"If you're real, stop me.
Stop me please.
If you can do anything, Why won't you stop me?"
'Because if I stopped you, it would claim your free will.
And it would steal from you the joy of when you come back.
Besides, you cannot run from me, for I am always with you.
When you run, when you walk, when you laugh, cry, or scream.
Even when you are in pain, I am with you. Always.'
I am too tired to realize I have stopped running,
and I sink to my knees right where I am.
I don't go back, but does it really matter?
The important thing is with me always.
I sat nervously looking at the sky wondering.
wondering, waiting, wishing.
What do you want from me?
Do you want me to go to you?
To go to you and stay?
Stay and never go?
I'm startled, and my eyes open slightly at the response.
'I want you to invite me to go with you.
I want you to out into the world,
and I want you to take me with you.'
