Breath

Your body lies there dying

Breathing labored, shattered rain

My palm upon your shoulder willing God to keep the pain

Suddenly a spark of life

Through you and to my heart

Understanding flows through us

We’ll never be apart

Overwhelming sharp and real

This NOW is nothing less

I thank you for the lessons

Taught with ever fleeting breath.
