Help me make it through the night - Gay Guys! <3

Recommended Posts

Posted

With thanks to Kris Kirstofferson



Stretch your hand and smooth my hair,
Hold my chin and smile at me,
Lay your fingers on my cheek,
Take away the agony.

Hold me tight within your arms,
Keep the memories out of sight;
All I ask is for some time,
Help me make it through the night.

I don’t ask what’s right or wrong,
No one else will comprehend:
I will face their hate tomorrow
For tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday has passed away
Tomorrows yet to dawn bright
Life is sad when your alone
Help me make it through the night

I don’t ask what’s right or wrong,
No one else will comprehend:
I will face their hate tomorrow
For tonight I need a friend.

Yesterday has passed away
Tomorrows yet to dawn bright
Life is sad when your alone
Help me make it through the night

Please I don’t want to be alone;
Help me make it through the night.

Maybe one day a gay singer will sing my words. It would be nice because I wrote it because on 20th January 2006 at 0230 my Dad died and I adored him and still miss him like crazy, and I know I wont sleep very good tonight and will feel very down and alone.

I think your Dad would be very moved by how you have just described him. You were very lucky to have had him as a Dad even though his life was so sadly cut short , and he was very lucky to have had such a loving son who is a great credit to him . Live for him , Dean. Carry his flag and gradually you will make it your own . I'm sure he would want you to do that.

Dean, you have and will forever be in my prayers. if you need some one to talk to or any thing else let me know. i am here for you. and if you feel like you are down and out and dont know what to do, you can write me at oregoncountryboy1968@msn.com and tell me whats bothering you and i will add you to my windows live messanger so we can chat. that way you wont feel like going through the whole day with out any one that is willing to help out.

There is nothing wrong in using ideas from other writers, it is really a compliment to them. Once again you have a very good poem which expresses your feelings perfectly, The words conjure up a picture that one can see in the mind as one reads the words.

I wish you would re-consider my offer to help you get published. It was a totally unconditional offer, I simply feel your writing deserves wider exposure, nothing more
