The moment

Will you take care of me

when I’m old and gray –

when my get up and go

has completely gone away?

Will you come and visit me

and maybe even stay –

stay, stay with me

maybe even for the day?

Will you take my hand

and maybe even say –

“You may not know

but my dear I love you so.

You’re my friend

and that will never, ever end.

We may only have this moment dear

but for this moment we are both here.

So maybe just for now, just for today

we can play like it’s yesterday

and since it’s all we get it will be enough

all because the moment is full of love.”

Will you, will you take care of me

when I’m old and gray?
