“To love”

I didn’t ask you to stay,
but you stayed.
I never asked you
who you where?
or what you wanted?,
You were simply there.

What do you want from me?
…Love?
Was I not stronger alone?
And did I ever need you?
…but stay a bit longer…

Not long…
just until they start asking
how I am
and I stop saying: “Fine”.

Everyone can tell at a glance:
You are here.
If you ever leave me…
I will go with you.
