One Last Time

a poem by Akshit Anand

Can I hold your hands for a little longer
Can we be together for a while.
Can you do something silly
probably that will help me smile.

Can you write me one more letter
Can you give one more chance
Can you give me one more day
Cause I still owe you a dance

Can I still dream about us
Can I call you mine.
Can we laugh together
And cry sometimes.

Can I be in your arms
And hug you one last time
This is my goodbye
To you for this lifetime.
