I love you
Let me hold on to you
I love you
Please don't let go
Please hold my hand again
I love you
All I can do
Is whisper that to you
Stretch out my hands
Hopelessly
And let you grasp me
So close
Please don't let go
Your warmth is gentle
And it is here
Somehow I feel you
I gasp
I ask you
To comfort me
Please don't let go
I sob
The pain fills every conceivable part
With every breath
I love you
As sorrow overwhelms
I call your name
And it is the only word I know
Please don't let me go.
I cling to you
I weep like a child for the past
For arms that surrounded
Only to let me slip
Watch me fall
But you...
I love you
Please don't let me go.

Author's note:

The line "I weep like a child for the past" is not
(strictly speaking) mine. It belongs to the amazing
D.H Lawrence and is from his poem "Piano" which
I highly recommend.
