Don’t let go

Don’t let go 

is my plea and not

my command;

don’t let go for I am

afraid that I will never

hold you again.


Let’s squeeze from life 

that we still share as one,

and feel my touch urgent

and sense my pain.


Don’t let go 

is the whisper of this soul;

for I sense you softly, softly 

in the silence of the night.
