Can you

A life within
with a soul, nurtured
escaped from this world
without even saying hello

A brave soldier
Quiet, calm, loved
Leaving in the night
before he could be found

Two hands entangled
grasping for strength
to overcome the pain
Thankful for the other
holding on to a memory
a feeling, an emptiness
Palm in palm
reminding the other
that they are here

Darkness coming
Life is going
I’m dying, can you save me?
Light is shining
Love my breathing
I am living can you feel me?
