Eternal Breath

Eternal Breath

Each time I laugh out loud           
I feel a little cloud
Because as my breath exhales from me
I hope it’s not lost in eternity.

When you pull a face you know
From your parents you did grow
We take on some of their ways
Be it from genes or length of days.

Is that smile from mum or dad?
Or the ancestors we had
Each one passed on their last breath
None really lost in death.

For the last breath that you breathe
Is the one that will not leave
I kissed you dad as you passed away
That tearful and such heartfelt day.

But dad as I kissed you 
I inhaled your dying breath
But you know you live in me
It was not the end in death
Your last breath you did leave
I breathe it now and know
That when my time is here
My eternal breath will flow.
My dying breath I leave
For my sons their lives to lead
Each breath that we all take 
Through each journey that we make.

From where our seed began
The birth of earthling man
That first created breath
Is eternal, not stilled by death.

    a very touching idea. it's nice to think that we have our ancestors living on inside of us and that we'll live on after we're gone, too. i enjoyed this poem, mandy!
