Never leave me alone,
My verse, for
You carry power to my cells,
You are the air in my breath,
You are the warmth of winter’s hearth,
You are the breeze of my spring,
Do not desert me in this wasteland,
Be by me, lead me to four quarters.
You are the lamp of my sleepless night,
You are the dream that wakes me bright,
You are the sensation that rains me delight
You are the means that gives hope to fight,
Be with me, till my last breath.
I have none,
To ring the bell when I shall depart,
Stand beside me to scatter
A handful of dust.
