Stay

Time slowly takes all away.

One by one, day by day,

I see who you once were

Fade into a muted gray.

Not all that dims is wrong to wane.

Not everything that dwindles was made to stay.

And you still build and recreate

Into a better version of what was once just okay.

And so as I watch these hours push you further

Into the tide I know will someday take you away

I hope you feel the love that surrounds you now;

I pray these sunrises will give us hope for the next day.
