I turn to the horizon

filling my lungs with air

I embrace the gift of life

a gift I wish to share


You cannot see my heart

but you can hear it speak

Filled with life- that I am

from my pen- I let it leak


With every blessed breath

I revel in life’s mystery

The grave holds no fear for me

as I embrace eternity
