Don't ask me to remember
Don't try to make me understand
Let me rest and know you're with me
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand
I'm confused beyond your concept
I'm sad and sick and lost
All I know is that I need you
To be with me at all cost
Don't lose your patience with me
Do not scold, curse or cry
Can't be different though I try
Just remember that I need you
The best of me is gone
Please don't fail to stand beside me
Love me till my life is done.
