Teach Me to Breathe

Life is too short to ignore one moment;
Blink once, and you'll come to its end.
Every second deserves to be cherished,
No matter the emotion or plot.

So I have asked the Wind to teach me
How to sing and sigh and breathe,
That every time I take a breath,
It is done with purpose and thought.

I have asked the Clouds to teach me
How to walk with power and grace,
That when I take a step, I'll glide
Whether I run, or walk, or trot.

I have asked the Storms to teach me
How to savor my beating heart,
That it will beat with the force of thunder
Just as the heart of a mighty lover ought.

I have asked the Reeds to teach me
How to whisper my every idea,
That everything will be considered
And leave nothing to be sought.

Such strange things to request,
Yet I have been taught well.
May these things be known and remembered,
Whether I am or not.
