Do I know you?

You seem fimiliar.....
but I don't know you
are you just passing through
like all the others
or did you come to stay a while

Did you seek me out
why are you here
I need you, I need a friend
Will you stay and be my friend
or will you be gone
like all the others

You are welcome to stay forever
and be my friend
This is a good place to be

you brought nothing when you 
came and may take nothing
when you leave
not even a memory

It will be as though you never were
but if you stay, it will be as though
you always were

Did you come here because it
was your desire
or were you driven here
from desperation and fear
