I Stood by Your Bed Last Night...
Author Unknown

I stood by your bed last night,
I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying,
you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you so softly
as you brushed away a tear,
Its me, I havent left you,
Im well, Im fine, Im here.

I was close to you at breakfast,
I watched you pour the tea.
You were thinking of the times,
Your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the grave today,
You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you,
That Im not lying there.

Tonight you look so tired,
As you sit upon your chair.
I try so hard to let you know,
That I am standing there.
Its possible for me,
to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty,
I never went away.

As you sat so very quietly,
In your smile I think you knew
In the stillness of the evening,
I was very close to you.
