A Spirit Breathes Lightly
I see you, face to face – and hear
a voice – as you whisper thoughts
into my ear.
Peace revolves around me,
I know when you return – but I have
understood – born too live –
and share your gift.
To those who cannot see beyond
the obvious – a place called earth – I ask,
set aside your fear and do not struggle –
accept another place and time into
Long ago a spirit whispered words into
your ear to tell you why I survived –
today, it will be me – explaining why I
survived – today it is me who
feels you standing over my shoulder.
A spirit has no end – as sure as
night turns into day you have
returned to hug me once – today.
We are a pebble resting near a shore
waiting for a flow of water to gently
pull us out to sea.
