Stay Close

.far be it 
.from me 
.to think back 
.and wonder 
.about this 
.or that 
.or the other thing 
.those moments 
.when the future 
.is on the line 
.our weakness 
.still there 
.our knowledge 
.of immortality 
.increasing always 
.no one gets 
.stains of life 
.memories all 
.and now 
.the markers are marked 
.the twilight is near 
.more happy days 
.to come 
.despite the blues 
.more joy 
.more than you could even consider 
.stay close 
.do not wander far 
.cast away deceit 
.live in the light 
.this is impossible 
.without help
