Come and Sit With Me Awhile

by Kathleen Higham

Come and sit with me awhile
Why could I not be still?
Just a sweet, tender request
Sometimes I failed to fulfill.

Come and sit with me awhile
For I may not always be here
Needing a little time from you
Time we will both hold dear.

Come and sit with me awhile
Before my time is gone
When tears will bring you to me
In the hours before the dawn.

Come and sit with me awhile
We don't even have to talk
Just come, just come, my child
We'll take a quiet walk.

Come and sit with me awhile
So quickly comes tomorrow
I pray for your presence
A moment I might borrow.

Come and sit with me awhile
Only one can love you more
My God, your God, our God
He waits at Heaven's door.

Come and sit with me awhile
For with Him I will leave
It may be unexpectedly
Your heart will not conceive.

Come and sit with me awhile
Remembering my Mother's voice
Come and sit with me awhile
Someday there will be no choice.

Come and sit with me awhile
Warm eyes will tenderly greet
A Mother's heart will touch you
When together we shall meet.

Come and sit with me awhile
I can feel my Mother's smile
She waits patiently in Heaven
Saying, "Come and sit with me awhile."
