When The Party Is Over What Then - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

When the party’s over will I still have a friend
If, you don’t love me now, you didn’t love me then

Ya tried to get away but you couldn’t
My love had a hold on you
Ya thought you had enough but just a little wouldn’t do

What you’re running from is already where you are going
You’re trying to break free but my love keeps towing you back to me

I am your sunshine
I am your diamond, your heart is my mine
I’m kindness in you gentle touch

You can’t give me up, you won’t turn me loose
All your reasons have become just and excuse
You’re trying to go forward while being pulled back
Fear has you entangled that’s why you feel trapped

You’re going the wrong way up a one way
Please listen to what I’m going to say
You shouldn’t be leaving because I want you to stay

But, if you still have a mind to stray
I want you to know you won’t get away
Just because you don’t see me doesn’t mean I’m not there
Just because you won’t allow yourself to feel doesn’t
Mean I don’t care

It doesn’t really matter, if you decide to roam
You will always be lost in sight of home
Our love is where you want to be, I am you, you are me

Everything we need we already possess
We love each other
We don’t have to settle for less

We don’t have to end at the beginning of our road
Love is not a burden, it’s not a heavy load

We, are the sunshine
We, are a diamond, our heart is the mine
We, are the kindness in our gentle touch

Now the party’s over, I will, you will always have a friend
We love each other now, we loved each other then
