Stay Here With Me

In the warm swirling thoughts of my morning coffee,

I wish to see your beautiful smile staring back at me.

You will always be more than you will understand,

as I soak in the idea of us walking hand in hand.


Come with me – to where a dream like you is a reality

and stay here to see how happy your love makes me.


The hope of you helped me to once again believe,

but a brooding fear of losing you is my greatest thief.

Come with me – so I can witness all of God’s grace

when I open my eyes to the miracle of your embrace.


Stay here with me and I promise you – I truly do –

you will never be a day without my love so true.
