Linger here a little longer
Remain nearby
to me a while
Sing to me sweet songs of love
and let me comfort
in your smile.

While you tarry, with your fingers
gently touch my tired hands;
cool my brow with dampened cloth
and wet my lips
with drips of dew.

After, kiss my eyelids gently clos-ed,
fold my arms across my chest —
and let me sail that ancient river
to the harbor of my rest.
