Stay Awhile

Please don’t leave because we’ve had harsh words,
if you leave right now things might become much worse.
Please, stay awhile. Let’s not fight.

Let’s look at where we think we’ve failed
without either of us assessing blame.
Will you stay awhile and hold me tight?

A wounded heart can love again
as long as we remain as friends.
Say you’ll stay awhile, until the light.
