                          Let it be me

You are my old song, my new song. You are my place to rest sweet love.
I want to see your beautiful face everyday of my life.
I want to hold your body near and to hear you whisper.
I love you Johnnie.

I don’t remember any bad days with you.
You made my hellish life seem sweet and okay.
I have lived and die in your smile and kind words.

You are my California dreaming.
My mountain top wishes.
My reasons to go forward, knowing.
I shall return to you.

I found you a long time ago and I asked you. Let it be me to keep you safe.
I didn’t know. You would save me and you would give me reason to be alive.

I love you my dear love.

Coyote/John Castellenas
