Today, a breath is taken in -
a simple automatic response,
eyelids open -
not even thought about.

Today, a love has been lost -
never to be held again,
the breath stops, the eyelids close -
the responses not simple.

Today, life and love is held much tighter,
never... it seems much closer than it did yesterday -
tomorrow isn't always an automatic response.
