Lost Body, Living Soul

By , Howell, MI
A breath I failed to catch
A heart I failed to love
A song I failed to sing

Now I sit,
Dying
there is no other way to say it—

when my body dies
will my soul
Die with it?
will my soul die too?

Just another face
Lost.
In a sea of troubles

What if
I had breathed that breath?
Would there be life?
What if
I had loved that heart?
Would it love me back?
What if
I had sang that song?
Would it have rhythm?

If I had
Breathed that breath
Loved that heart
Sang that song
Would I now bare their
Imprint
Would my soul still be alive
in
That breath
That heart
That song


My name will not be woven into the
Tapestry of Time--
which waves before me
a white
surrender flag--
Battle
Wreckage
of

my


Heart

Now I sit
--Dying--
My soul
Dying
with Me

white
Surrender
Flag reflects in
Hazy gaze
--my eyes
will
Never
See again

I wish I still had
Lost breath
Broken heart
Forgotten song
Gone.

Now I slip into sea
Just another face
Another soul


washed





away

If only they knew--
in my last breath
I
Am
Breathing
now
I breathe with my life

last love my heart is
Giving now
is to yours
last song I am
Singing
Is one with rhythm

Now
I sit
Dying
I
hope,
Pray
my
Soul
will
Live
