    Hi Mandy, thanks for dropping by and the comment, and the congrat's. As soon as I knew the title of this poem I knew how the poem would go. I still had to think hard on whether to write this poem or not. It did bring back thoughts kept hidden away.You never know, with hope this lady shall be the one to recieve my eternal breath. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Ram, thanks for dropping by and the comment and the congrat's. The eternal breath comes at the end of our days on this earth it can be given in many ways. It's strange, human nature, how so many are afraid to face that final moment, while there are those who are willing to embrace it. I'm an embracer. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Donna. As my years go along I sometimes wonderif anyone shall take my eternal breath, held in the last kiss I shall give. The honour is great when it is given. It is a great gift to be given what is termed the eternal breath. One day, I am sure, I may recieve an eternal breath, but I will give mine to my Love. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Linda, thanks for dropping by and the comment. That is one way to do it, yes. Many beautiful poems, yes. I don't know how you all manage to go through them and pick out placings. This was a sad write for me, in a way, I had to go back to sorrowful days, memories locked away behind that door saying, "Open with care." Still, it was worth it. Have a good day. Catch you later, Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Anne-Lise, thanks for dropping by and the comment. Yes it was a deep theme and I had to think hard whether I would write this poem or not. I would have liked for it to have been this way with the young lady in question but that was not to be. I would have taken her eternal breath. There were so many good poems in this contest. Congratulations to everyone. Your Friend....MIKE.

    Hi Liam, thanks for dropping by and the comment. How many times have I lived and died? Strange question, but one I ask myself many times. Deja vu plays a big part in my life. S0metimes you write something and you think, I've been there, I've done this. Strangely enough this was one of those times. I guess I just wanted to show Love eternal through the eternal breath. Have a good day.. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Linda, thanks for dropping by and the comment, much appreciated, believe me. I only write as the heart dictates. I can see a joyful side in almost anything. Take eternal breath, that last breath of mortality and that first breath of immortality. A sad occasion yes, but joy can be brought forth. In joy there is always beauty, In death there is light that can be seen. Have a good day. Your Friend always....MIKE.
