Falling

I am falling and I reach
Your hand touches mine,
Just briefly.
And oh, so briefly.
Then I fall.
Further and further,
Going down and down.
Fingers brush once more
But cannot pull me
So I fall.
Hit the bottom and
See you watching,
Crying, reaching.
Too late.
Your heart touches mine,
Just briefly.
And oh, too briefly.
Your life and mine,
Entwined.
Now over.
Oh, so very brief.
I am falling, and
The end comes so soon.

The End
