Poem -

everything is going to be all right

everything is going to be all right

if it is not forever
can you please at least stay the night?
I know it’s a bit daring to ask
but here is cold and lonesome
and I need a friend
I need someone to love
tonight
 
I don’t mind if you pretend
if we could be just friends
or maybe something more
you know?
what I am trying to say is
the day has been long and
I need to close my eyes
I need to say I love you and
I need to hear that I am being loved as well
maybe a friendly hand to hold
maybe a friendly face to kiss
maybe if with your voice I hear
that everything is going to be fine
tonight
 
if it is not much to ask
please stay tonight
I promise you when the morning comes
I won’t try to hold you back
neither you should worry as I won’t cry
I will make you coffee and you will go in peace
please believe me and trust me on this
I have already learned very well
how to say goodbye without
having my heart broken
all over again
 
it is just
I need a friend tonight
I need to be held tight in a lover's arms
I ought to pull myself together
and I need to be sure
that everything is going to fine
I need somebody to tell me
everything is going to be fine
so if yo could….
what I am trying to say
in a very clumpy way is
I need you and
if not forever
please at least
can you stay here
with me
tonight?
