Each Breath


Slowly inhale our love as we surround you

Filling your lungs with family

Long exhales, releasing fear and anxiety

Creating space for another breath of us, of life

Eyes closed, breathe, calm your nerves

We are here, by your side always

Lilacs Behind Her Eyes

Stray wills relive broken bridges

Lost letters, gone

Bird’s eye views serenade incomplete days of us

So much blue lingers, waiting

The weight of lilacs behind her eyes

Bear one sided tales left untold

Searching for maps of the snow
