In an Instant

Life changes

Everything we once knew, gone

Your life is slipping through my fingers

I whisper, please don’t go

You do not hear

Faint heartbeat barely ticking

Tears streaming from my face

I can’t lose you, not now... not ever

Stuck behind layers of protection

I can’t touch you

I just want to touch you once more

Feel your warmth against mine

Kiss your lips, and feel secure

Please don’t go

I can’t do this alone

You promised me forever

Invaded by an invisible enemy

You fight a never-ending barriage

Your body, a war zone

I am helpless

Watching

Waiting

Supporting from the sidelines

I plead

Please spare him
