If You Should Fall

- jan-u-wine

Always,
I have understood
you.

Even when you did not know
yourself,
I saw
the curious
rightness of you.

Understand this:
I will not
let
you give up.

I will not
let
you fail.

No matter
you cannot
speak
or hear
my voice.

I shall
push you
one more step along the way.

I shall carry you
'round
one more turn of the Road.

I shall drag
you
after me,
like a child's
broken doll.

Until breath
leaves
you,
I will stay by you.

And after........

and after.....

I have no need
for remembrance,
for I
remember all.
Do not think
for a moment
I could,
in truth
hate you
leave you
forget you.

It will ever be
my
happy sorrow
to remember
you.

If
you
should
fall.
