One Last Sigh

I brushed the fabric black fields
 of heaven, ripping, a sliver of time
 flashed lightning and unveiled
 the universe speaking in one voice 

With numbing relief I softly run
 my fingers cross the firmament
 feeling moments ripple in tune
 with the song ringing in my bones 

I sing with agony and pain
 my only voice, I breathe in
 bubbles of pure white light
 but gasp with a tongue of hope
 conversing in unspoken history 

I can now carelessly stroll
 cutting a swath through sheer will,
 across memories rhymed to repeat
 I softly tread filling my spirit
 with the elation of joy and love 

In memory ...

I look back at my footprints
 wondering at the million moments
 that will vanish on my last sigh
 magnetic I gravitate to eternity 

And now hands cross my face
 as a second counted milli’s,
 final gasps are heard in sleep
 moaning in tune with the ache 

Underneath tomorrow lays forever
 trilling for my return to the fold
 and collecting stars in my basket
 I make stardust as your eyes stroll 

My darlings,

You cannot follow
 where I have to go
 I love you into forever
 it will always be so 

With the standing greys
 my spirit will shortly fly to rest
 to see the face of the most holy
 I will rest on a white doves breast 

I am tired, so tired, I unravel undone
 tumbling on forwards
 paper fibrils flutter
 I've now felt rapture in release, 

I am numb and broken in body
 falling forever into the night
 my eyes are always blurred
 as the dawn mourns its sight 

reaching out of the dark of the vale
 I will find my place in God’s Grace
 under relief an earthquake will shake
 I already miss your gorgeous face

with a last sigh I am unlaced ...
