“Revival”
by Eric Mills

There his family sat in darkness
They knew that Lily was gone, but no one knew where
Perhaps she went home as her religion says,
But his sister was gone
If she came back she would make smile
Her best friend, his better half

He tried to calm his wife down,
It had been two years down to the minute
She said I’d die if I had nothing left of her
She held a religious silver bracelet

If I hold on, maybe she won’t have to go
If I hold on it might not be adieu
If I hold on she might not be lost
If I hold on, maybe it won’t be true

A few days later he was walking home
From the hustle he knew, something’s not right
Right in front of his house he saw
That there were paramedics, bright flashing lights

He pushed and fought till he made his way through
He saw his lover lying, she wasn’t coming to
It wasn’t that help had arrived too late,
But a silver bracelet reading “do not resuscitate”

He tried to tell them that it wasn’t hers (they didn’t know)
But from the noise no one heard any of his words
He hoped that she wouldn’t end like this (no please don’t go)
He run up fast and held her hand in his

If I hold on, maybe she won’t have to go
If I hold on it might not be adieu
If I hold on she might not be lost
If I hold on, maybe it won’t be

True
Maybe it won’t be
True

(x2)
If I hold on, maybe she won’t have to go
If I hold on it might not be adieu
If I hold on she might not be lost
If I hold on, maybe it won’t be true|
(If I hold on, if I just hold on)

He tightened his grip (holding on)
He clung to her as the chaos around him became an intangible void
He didn’t realize why he was drifting from her, for he could not feel the hands on his body that pulled him away.
To him, in this moment,
Only one thing mattered
