I Can't Ever Reach To Find You...

 PAD Challenge 23: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “I Can’t (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

 So much slips from touch so fast...

I can’t ever reach to find you
Soft you waft from dawn to dawn
My clenched fingers cannot bind you
One day here, the next you’re gone

I can’t ever turn to touch you
Save in rendezvous of thought
After you have lent your virtue
After I have spent your lot

I can’t ever have a redo
Once-in-a-lifetime; Today
So I must make the most of you
Before you slip-slip away

I can’t see you save in faces
Places, graces you estrange
God, help me before Thought traces
Everything nothing can change
