Keep me close around your neck

Keep me close

Around your neck

Like a chain made of

The beads of our sweet love

So that I’ll be there with you

Always

Warm and snug against

Your tender heart

*

As you walk

So I shall sway

To each retched step

We take apart

*

Hang me around your neck

So you might hold me close

When you’re in distress

And the world

Your enemy

*

Thread your path

In the sunlight, my love

The beads that surround me

Shall glisten brightly

And keep you light

For each is a gem that holds our past

The good and the bad

Suspended by the years

That hold us together

And even stronger when we part

*

Hold me, my love

Don’t you dare tear me off

For I will shatter with

Each bead that falls

Spilling us nowhere and everywhere

Into the gutters

And out of your heart

*

Oh, I know you won’t, my dearest

I’ve faith in you that much

I see the love in your eyes

And I feel it when we touch

*
