If I Fall - Poem by Andy Greenwald

If I fall along the way,
Would You be right here to stay,
Would You help me with my broken heart,
To sow it back after it was torn apart,
Would I let You come to me,
To give me any sort of ease,
Or would I refuse to let You near,
Because of my own cowardice and fear.

But if I fall along the way,
Would You give me what you may,
Or would You turn your back,
To hollow my soul for its lack,
Would I cry in helpless waves,
Would You come to me and save,
Me from my feebled fate,
Tragic, though, because You're too late.

So now I fell along the way,
Should I still reply to say,
About the darkness to follow soon,
Underneath the blue hue of the moon,
So in grander days of twilight grief,
Do You give me any kind of relief,
Or will You let me melancholy fall,
Because You did nothing,
Nothing at all.
