one last time

I held on to you as long as I could 
but your presence that I felt around me
I cannot feel it anymore
your face that I saw in my dreams
I don’t see it anymore
it’s as if you are moving on
dissolving into nothingness... 

who decides when it is time to let go
of the loved ones we have lost?
if I ask, would that someone
give me another chance
to see you for one last time? 
would that someone
let me feel your touch,
for one last time
a reminder of the life we had together
would that someone
let me kiss you goodbye… 
so that I can move on?
