Breath deep. Breath strong.
Breath sweet. Breath long.
For tomorrow is not promised
and today may be all we have
to hold on to one another.
So place your hand in mine;
fall into my arms.
Don't rush away.
If only for today,
stay.

blooms

Long after the flowers have faded
your love
still blooms in my heart.

melody

You, like a familiar song,
stir up a melody with
recognized down beats,
and I start to hum along
in unrehearsed measures.

umbrella

Realizing her umbrella
is so much bigger than she'll ever need
because it was meant
to shelter others as well.

just be

Every once in a while
my breath catches in my throat
as I see how far I've yet to go
and how much I've still to do.
Then you hold me
reminding me to
breathe;
there's so much to just be.

stand

Brow to brow
we lean in,
these moments long
and solemn.
Yet we stand
by the strength found
in the force of another.

Harpsichord

Harpsichord and strings
draw me in.
A swirl of satin,
your breath on my neck,
in a twirl I am 
transported.
