More Time

Time
is moving so fast
I can’t keep up with its hands.
Each step I take
takes me further away
from you.
It’s only a matter of time
I have to leave you behind,
but my hands can’t let go.
How can I
when your hands
were the first I ever held.
They were strong,
unwavering-
like the flame of a lamp
on a windless night.
Can we have more time
to keep this candle burning.
I am not afraid of the dark-
I just want to hold your hand
one more time.
