if you leave me

if you leave me
if you leave me i will die
if you leave me my breath will choke me
and i will surely die
yet i beg you to come
stir my love for you
stir it with your kindness
stir my love for you
stir it with your peace
let me hold on to your words
by them i find life
let me not hold on to you
because i selfishly want to live
let me hold on to you because
i love you
let me refuse darkness
because i love the light of your face
you are my light
when you are not here
i fumble in darkness
do not leave me
you are my light
you made a covenant with me
one you cannot break
one you cannot break
one you cannot break
but you promised
that niether shall you leave me
yes you promised that
niether shall you forsake me
so i must remain in your presence forever
now that you are here
now that you cannot leave
now that you will not never leave
