I Ask


If I ask you to stay, will you linger beside me? If I promise you tomorrow, will you give me today? If I am faithful to you, will I remain true to myself? If I accomplish much, have I gained less? If I do not ask, does this mean that you know? If I search and I find, have I lost what I seek? If I let go of my past, will I gain a future? If I trust and obay, will you show me a better way? If I should dare to dream, will you come apart at the seams? If you hold me toady, will I continue to stay? I wonder....

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
