Ode to Last Breath

By DarkestSunshine, Mill Valley, CA

A gulp a gasp or a sigh
Pleading for more time
Or surrendering to the dark
To struggle or to resign.

A ragged breath or one of peace,
A happy end or a sad beginning.
In the end the choice is yours,
Will you depart ruefully, or leave winning.

It says a lot about someone
Their last of last, the finale
What they might be wondering
What hopes they might have rallied.

It starts and ends with a breath
Opposite doorways that make a whole
One lifetime to complete the circle
One clap in the dance of the soul.
