Battle Against Time

Hands intertwined, anxiously awaiting
each spoken word they hear,
challenging a decision,
a battle against time.

Holding each other tight
drying tears,
disappointing news
confirming their worst suspicion.

Gaining helpful knowledge
diminishes fear
within this uphill battle,
sighs of relief.

Striking forces together,
tackling this complex maze,
imminent defeat
is no match for strong-willed determination.
