Do I stay or do I go?

Leave you alone

I am meant
To hold you close to my heart
Keep you safe from harm
Even if means
my heart must break
and I must shed a thousand tears
over and over again

When night comes
I resolve
to leave you
when daylight breaks

Intuitively, you pull me close
Sensing my resolve to retreat
From your embrace
Holding me, gently

I have pushed you away
far away
so many times

You won’t go
And I won’t leave

we can’t do it on our own.
