Please stay with me
For I can’t eat without you
I can’t cook without you
I can’t bath without you
I can’t swim without you
I can’t sleep without you
I can’t sweat without you
I can’t wash, scrub, brush without you
My toilet mate, my Bedmate
Wipe my tears for you’re my tears

Please stay with me
To flee the gays
I’ld be gay
Your kiss keeps me alive
Your touch keeps my pets alive
Your shower keeps our flowers alive;
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
For greets at us

Please stay with me
To learn your mystery
You’re made of what
That satisfy thirst and more?
Your beginning is how and when?
You’re indeed mysterious, but…

Please stay with me
For I need your protection and worth
I’ld be gay at my foes’ grip of your wrath
As in Exodus 14
I weep at my friends grip of your wrath
As in Anambra flood 2017-Nigeria
Yangtze flood 1931-China, Mississippi flood 1927-America
And you swallowed my toy- Titanic 1912
All the same…

Please stay with me
For you’re my lover
You’re life
You’re Water!
