Please walk with me awhile

Poem by Dante Muzzo

Let me laugh
Let me cry
Let me dance
Let me lie

You know…I’m still alive!

Let me think
Let me say
Let me help
Let me stay

You know…I’m still alive!

Let me hug
Let me clean
Let me sleep
Let me lean

You know…I’m still alive!

Let me make a mess
Let me get dressed
Let me show my whims
Let me be blessed

You know…I’m still alive!

Let me sit
Let me stink
Let me stand
Let me drink

You know…I’m still alive!

Let me hurt
Let me talk
Let me call
Let me walk

You know…I’m still alive!

I know that you love me.
Please let me be me!
Just walk with me awhile
this last little mile.
