Stay and be Seen (For a While)


Image

So many people

Come and go

Oh, won’t you stay for a while?

Perhaps not forever,

Because I prefer red

While you prefer blue,

But won’t you stay for a while?

 

And does your soul

Not grow weary of the

Hello

How are you

And goodbye?

 

The world might miss you,

I mean–

You may not really be seen

While shifting aimlessly

From room to room.

 

Don’t you want to be seen for a while?

 

I think that perhaps

When the time becomes ripe,

Life will show us both the door.

But for now,

I need you to stay for a while.

 

And yes, maybe I prefer red,

While you prefer blue,

But can’t we just forget about colors

And lie here together

For a while?

 

Then again,

Maybe you prefer

To slip by anonymously

From one room to the next

Never seen,

Never staying,

For more than a little while.

 

But darling,

From where I stand,

You should stay

And be seen

For a while.
