I Will Not Let You Die

I stood quietly in the circle
holding my siblings hands
eyes fixed on a point
a few feet in front of me
while my mind kept repeating

I will not let you die
I will not let you die
I will not let you die

and then I squeezed
my sister’s hand
all the while wondering
if she felt it.
