Last Breathe in a Bottle

March 24, 2017

The last breath he ever took

will forever be filed in this vile

that hang by a tube 

and sways in my sight. 


As I stare at it sharply,

the memories dance through my head 

and the tears dash down my face.


Some of sorrow 

and some of solace.


Though it's just a reminder of reminiscence

that this small substance has so much meaning.


A half life of 43 years

that was sniped too short, 

has all been condensed 

and printed on to a pocket-sized piece of paper.


His heart beat remain beloved.
