Holding On To Life While Slipping Into Death

Written by: Destini Williams

Holding my breath As I wait for her to depart But still she holds on To the last speck of dust she calls life Months and weeks pass her by And every day that dies away She says "goodbye" But the morning replies "hello" She anticipates her arrival To the beloved home she calls heaven Walking through those gates Her golden wings stretch across nations But until then she's still holding on Still waiting Still breathing And remains alive
