Catch Me If I Fall

Poem by jennifer jane pryce

You always said you’d be there
Through thick and thin you said
How come when I now need you
You’re fast asleep in bed

You were the one to woo me
And I just let you be
I thought you meant those words
That seemed so true to me

Tell me if you care now
Or is it just plain habit
Can we go the distance?
You always seem so crabbit

Tell me one more time then
That you want to be with me
Can I trust your word still?
Or is it not to be

Why are you still sleeping?
When all I want to do
Is get you up my darling
And help me to the loo

You and I were lovers
And were always meant to be
Close to one another…
And now there will be three

Well now the time has come dear
When I need you all the more
Wake up my love and help me
Get through this blinking door

My belly is too big to move
I can’t make it to the hall
Prove to me you are my prince
And catch me if I fall! !
