Without Your Faith

Without your faith
I was dying.
All around me were lies.
Then you came
opening horizons
That I
who believed
in the impossible
had never seen before.
Now I am dying again.
You have told me
an impossibility
I cannot believe.

You came to me
a year ago
frightened.
I tried to give you comfort
failing.
The fear you felt
caused me to wonder:
Is it true?
Today you told me it was.

What do I do now?
You draw away from me.
You clutch your fear
to yourself,
denying my hope.
I reach for you
and pray.
You let me hold you,
just once.
