i wonder as i breathe in this thinning air,
how you whispered into it your last words.
i wonder what they would've been-
the ache of your soul or the
throbbing pain in your head;
the fear you would've felt
before realizing that it was the end?
what were they?
the moans of goodbye and the broken hearts
prayed a moment for you to open those eyes
and see the world more bright.
i wonder if it was the end of suffering
or a last hope in your heart to live a bit more.
but, then slammed the door.
your vision broke
or did you see things clearer than before?
what was it?
i wonder as i breathe in this frozen air
if my lungs are absorbing what you never said.
i wonder if i know you're talking to me
or thinking about what you could've been
had you got a little while longer;
the girl who measured life and death
and chose the latter. live here in me
and i shall breathe for you
in a hope that each breath i take
could maybe; just maybe put life into you.
