can I ask you?

  
Can I ask you to take care of me?

When these little stepping stones become slippery in a sudden flood

And all the solid ground is tilting uncontrollably

Can I hold to you like unchanging rock

Like the bare bones of the earth

Until this tide has come

Left the old landmarks all undone

And I find I’m pressed onto the hard body of the shore

Ready to stand up and be strong once more
