Stay

If the sun goes dark tomorrow

as it rises in the east

and we plummet into shadow–

Should the earth’s revolving cease–

If the oceans break their borders

and submerge the mountaintops–

If the ground gives way beneath us–

If the timeline simply stops–

In the darkness and confusion

In the chaos and the flame

Let me feel your hand in mine

Let me hear you speak my name

And that will be enough

to help me bravely face the end

We’ll get through the unbearable

Just stay with me, my friend
