TRY TO STAY ANOTHER MOMENT FOR ME!

(IN HONOR OF ALL SURVIVORS)


Try to stay another moment
     because you may find
          during this season
               a reason to be.

I know the pain is tearing
     at your most tender self
          and hope seems a joke
               because of the death yoke.

You may not see the reason
     but there is a why
          to your being
               if the only why is me.

You do for me what no one
     before you has ever done
          so before you go on          
               Try to stay another moment for me!

You may find to your surprise
     That what you did for me in that moment
          Turns into mountains climbed
               For seasons to come. 

Try to stay another moment for me
     and a real reason to be will come for thee.
