It’s your way of speaking when you have no voice.
Show some indication that you are alive.
Take a deep breath and see how you thrive.
She moved through life like she was floating on air.
I didn’t know she was giving me a breathing lesson--
lips barely parted with her hands folded and rested.
Exemplifying the ease at which it takes
to quiet doubts and mend the breaks.
God took my body and in it He breathed.
So when you inhale and exhale notice your breath
and realize God is dwelling in your chest.
we take one last breath and our souls fly away on the wind.
