Hold on just a little while longer

Hold on just a little while longer

-         breaking the speed limit
 on a light August day,

running to the ticket office -

tell the ferry to wait -
my heart bursting through my chest -
Too late.

You were at my birth –

I wanted to hold on
to your hand -

when you died.
