Holding on.

I am sitting with you,
hands pulsing
heart racing.
I am sitting with you,
allowing my tears to soak
deep into the ground.
I am sitting with you,
grieving a thousand missed moments.

I want your touch so badly
but I feel so lost

I concentrate on words like
cancer and exhaustion, and
neglect words like
strength and meaning

I am looking for answers.
I am standing in deep water
coat tails dragging,
holding onto the shore.
