Gary R. Ferris Poems

Stay by Gary R. Ferris
For why cometh a time,

When you forget yesterday?

Forgot our vows that we made,

And turn and walk away.
How can a heart forget,

The love we once had?

And turn yourself against me,

And make my soul so sad.
You’ve found someone better,

And you’ll leave us behind;

You think you can change your heart,

And erase your troubled mind.
How can you just quit,

And let our love just die?

I’ve done all I know to do,

But you refuse to try.

If I could only be around you,

Our love would live , I bet;

But you want me to stay away,

So you can just forget.
For what has happened to you,

That has torn up your mind?

From the precious girl I once loved,

The one so pure and kind.
I know that you are hurting,

You can’t look at me any more;

I know I can help you,

Heal your heart that’s sore.
I know I’m not perfect,

But I really try to be;

I really truly love you,

That you’ve got to see.

I know I’m no studly man,

Big and tall I’m not;

I don’t have much to offer you,

But all the love I got.
We’ve had our share of problems,

But troubles don’t last long;

If we work together,

From them we can be strong.
Maybe you think you’ve gone too far,

And respect you’ll never get;

But if only you’d just reach out,

Forgiveness can be met.
Don’t give up like other folks,

Just so you’ll fit in;

For God and I believe in you,

And beg you not to sin.

I know that you’re confused now,

And don’t know how to turn;

Just take one step toward me,

And leave your pain to burn.
For I so love you dearly,

I can’t watch you walk away;

Please tell me you love me too,

And that you want to stay.
