I’ll Stay By You

6th in the series of “tell me your song, and i’ll write you a poem”


I’ll Stay By You



i’ll be beside you as you watch with joy the butterflies dance freely alongside the bees in the garden
i’ll smile along with you with awe, for every single rainbow we witness at the end of each storm
and when the night falls, let’s stay up late together and dream the dreams we have,
and count the stars the best way we can
but i sure be there for you even when the butterflies are gone and the garden went dry
i will still make you smile even during a stormy day  and the sun is still up somewhere
it may not be enough
but i know, together we will be
“we have each other just hold on tight”


i promise to take care of you and love you more each day with better understanding of your individuality
i swear to stay by your side and laugh at your own “out of context” silly jokes
and i swear by the grace of whoever invented the crazy act of funny gestures, i’ll do it for you
let’s play charades and hide and seek as if we were the little kids we used to be
but i promise with all my heart, i will stay beside you and never leave you behind when there aren’t funny jokes to laugh with
or when we run out of words to play charades with, and even if we’ve explored the whole place for hide and seek
it may not be enough
but i know, together we will be
“we have each other just hold on tight”


most of all i will take care of you even if you become the most annoying human being
I will understand your crazy little tantrums and hold on until and always
and lastly, I swear to love you when there is nothing more loveable about
 and when we argue, when we fight, when we disagre
 i will love you even more
‘cos that will never make me love you less


it may not be enough
but i know, together we will be
“we have each other just hold on tight”

  1. I clicked on the song and as it played I read your poem, SweetMich! Tears of joy filled my eyes…such beauty, such love, such security. 🙂 To know that someone is there…even if the two have to be apart for a time…to know he or she is there and thinking about you is the best! 🙂 And when the two are together…SIGH! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
