Stay (String of Tanka)

Stay and don't let go
If you can endure my storms
And stand my fury
If you can brave my rapids
To cross my tranquil waters

I'm elemental
Like the forces of nature
As my pendulous mood swings
High and low tepid and warm

I am a fusion
Of timidity and wildness
The darkness and light
Cohabit in my being
That brings my dual nature

Stay and don't let go
If you can embrace the dark
In my personhood
If you can love both faces
That are ugly and pretty

I'm a tame angel
When the light in me shines bright
And turn sinister
When cross as fury rages
To consume my sanity

If you have courage
To take me wholly as me
And accept my flaws
Then stay with me don't let go
I'll show you the way to love

Beyond these faces
You see in my dark and light
There's more you didn't see
My heart is beating with love
Waiting to flow and love you

My arms are open
Wide enough to embrace you
In all your moments
And take you in your darkness
Console you in your sadness

Stay and don't let go
Let me fill the empty space
With abundant love
Let me heal the wounds and scars
As I mend your broken heart
