One More Day

Regina Puckett

Can you please say something

That will embrace, linger and cling

Long after you have decided to leave

For all I really need is to believe

That even though you aren’t here – you care

A belief – when this silence is too much to bear

Because with just one word

I will have heard

Thousands of reasons to believe and stay

Even if all you ask is for one more day
