"Breath Of Life"

a poem by Richard Gildea, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

His life was not meant to end this day
Holding him close, the rhythm of my heart beats in desperation

All else has failed, one last hope
Lord kiss my breath with life; do not let it end this way

The feel of his touch upon my lips, no response,
no willingness to engage
Understanding has given way to supplication, do not give in

We are one, in that precious moment when life lingers still
Then all is lost
My aching heart will beat for two, as long as memory endures.
