Long After

Long after I am gone ..
Remember I was the one..
That waited for you long enough.
Compared to the shadows..
That fled scared of shun.
Long after I am gone..
Remember I was the one..
That spoke about you among the few.
Compared to the ones that..
Stuck with you just for a drink or two.
Long after I am gone..
Remember I was the one..
Who picked up dark over the spark..
Of a cozy comfort virtue..
Compared to the ones who fled ..
From your side as soon as they got any clue.
Long after I am gone..
Don’t forget me as a residue..
But remember me as the one..
Who followed you after all that I knew..
When everyone else drew..
A change across what they found new.
