Holding On

I’m holding on too long

Afraid if I let go the memory fades

I will forget who you are

I won’t remember what to do

I don’t know how much longer I can hold on

Hands are getting tried

I feel you struggling for me to let go

I don’t want to let go

Yet I know that I have too

The sweat is making my hands slippery

The more you scream to let you go

I loosen my grip

I see life in your eyes

A life that was once mine

Our paths will cross again in death

For now I let go

Watch you fade from the present

Fall in the dark abyss of my past

I let go of the old me today

I moved on from the person I use to be
