Do not let go, listen to me please.
My guardian, my friend, my muse, my light in the dark.
Life has slashed at you.
Open sores on your soul.
Scars that will not heal.
Life has been unkind to you.
Dealt you blows unimagined.
Made you strong.
Made you vital.
Made you exist.
You have talked and observed.
Listened and made comments.
Adjust the stirrups on your ride.
Chased zephyrs in the wind.
Rode the wind.
Now is not the time to go.
Stay, stay awhile longer.
I have much to learn.
You cannot desert me now.
You fool, why must you be like this.
I hate you.
You are so unfair.
You are heartless, have no feeling.
You do not love me.
You never did.
You lied to me, constant lies.
Of love and affection.
Dangling knees and night-time stories.
I need you now, more than ever.
It is not the right time to leave.
You must stay, I demand it.
I order it.
Please God, help me, it cannot end like this.
Your smile does not change things.
Too many bows, left untied.
Too many kisses that are owed.
Too many promises, yet to be delivered
You can not let go.
My life is still in it’s clay form.
Your hands need to mould it.
Your slender, firm fingers need to guide it.
Your shoulder, I need to lean on.
Your arms, I need to feel around me.
Please do not let go, just a few more minutes.
I ask for so little.
My heart is breaking.
I will be sad, burnt ashes of life in my mouth.
I will mourn forever.
I will always remember what you said.
It will stay, locked in my soul.
The canvas of life. you painted for me.
The words, you put into my mouth.
The hands I hold out to others, yours.
If you wish to go.
Find your release, I am still chained.
Please, let me go with you.
I am losing too much.
Your face, now serene.
My eyes, drained of tears.
My memories, console me.
Just can I just whisper, one last thing before you go
I love you I always will, I always have.
Without you, life has no meaning.
I look at my child, and think.
Can he be such as you.
Can he be as strong as you.
Can he be the man you were.
He looks like you.
Has the love you have, inside him.
He is you and I am happy now.
Farewell, you continue on.
Slowly, not wanting to depart.
The last look, forever in our memories.
The face of a young man, not and old man.
Resting so peacefully.
Be at peace, be content, you have a accomplished so much.
