Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow (Revised)

by Nov 6, 2011Poetry

Don’t go where I can’t follow.
Don’t climb where I can’t reach.
Don’t swim across the ocean wide,
And leave me on the beach.

Do not fly when I am planted
On this ground on which I stand.
Don’t soar up to the heavens
While I am here on land.

Don’t run when I am weary.
Just stay right by my side.
Don’t find a place where I can’t be,
And forsake me far behind.

Don’t lie still when I am moving,
Frodo, please open your eyes.
Don’t die while I am living,
I’m not ready for goodbyes.
