Never Let Go

Hold On.
Until your fingers grow sore
and your heart pounds furiously,
echoing in your temples.
Grip tighter and tighter
counting each moment
until the next number is unknown.
Open your eyes and watch the stars.
Let them bathe you
in a frosty warmth.
Feel your breath deepen as you prepare to fall,
but Never, never let go.

Sense the flames
flickering in your heart,
but never let them die.
Listen to their aching passions
and use their silent assurances
to pull yourself up
so you can finally rest your fingers
and continue walking on life's path
Never forgetting
the cliff you held on to,
so tightly,
so reluctant to let go.
