A Sleepless Night

I want to show them love
More than what they’ve given me
More than I’ve ever given anyone
Time is taking them away from me

From their wrinkled skin I can see
From their limited movements I can feel
From the way they look at things
From the way they stare at me
I can really taste it…
Finality seems near.

Something I have to learn to embrace
Open-heartedly.
I abhor it yet it’s bound to happen

No, I still want to hold their warm hands
I still want to squeeze them with love
I still want to take care of them
Show them the world
Like how they did to me when I was young
I still want to share my days and milestones with them
But, it feels like I am losing time

I just want to stare at them and make every moment last
Maybe that’s exactly how they felt when I was a baby
They didn’t want me to grow up fast

I don’t want to go to sleep
For I fear that when I open my eyes,
They’ll be gone.
I love my mom and dad
I hate that time seems slowly taking them away from me!
