Come Stand by Me

by Wendy L. Macdonald



Come Stand by Me


Come stand by me

not as a perfect chorus

or as one who sings to please

It is simply you

 your presence I desire to be

A gentle lingering


 whispered between us two


Come stand by me

just as you are

and all that you will be

our loneliness undone

as friends and companions to see

together facing


that our future will have sung


Come stand by me

our voices full or not

bound as one – yet free

For it’s your heart’s song I long to hear

joined with warm tones in me

 love’s lyrics that we belong


 forever near.
