Jump

Don't jump, Sir.

If you'll pardon the trite quips of a stranger, 

Don't jump.

  

Don't jump, Sir.

If in my eyes you see yourself and your Creator,

Don't jump.

  

Don't jump, Sir.

If you have ever lost someone you loved, you'd know the pain your fall will cause me,

Don't jump.

  

Don't jump, Sir.

If a cajoling old man is anything to stir in your breast, 

Don't Jump.

  

Don't jump, Sir.

If you love me as a fellow child of God, 

Don't jump.

  

Don't jump, Sir.

You've always been afraid of heights.

  

Don't jump, Sir,

Ever since you were a boy you've marvelled at the powers of gravity

Don't jump Sir,

and since then you've only wanted for yourself to see

Don't jump Sir,

It's only me

Don't jump Sir-

One. Two. Three.

The End
