Holding Hands

i held your hand
the day we met

i held your hand
the day we married

i held your hand
the day we gave birth
and kept holding it
as we said good bye
to the baby
we would never
come to know

i held your hand
when we walked in the park

i held your hand
when we danced

i held your hand
when you received your diagnosis

i held your hand
when you were lying in wake

i will never
let go
