Happy Valentine’s Day to all! Sending my love to all of you out there, with every breath I take. 🙂
Love is realising that we
Are constantly breathing each other’s breaths.
Knowing, that each breath you take
Has something of someone else
A sigh, a laugh, a cry, an exasperation.
Love is knowing that each breath you take
Has been taken before
And it’s not just the oxygen from the trees
Or the giving nature of their leaves
That is keeping us alive.
It is the breath of you,
The breath of me
And the breath of all of humanity,
That keeps all of us warm
On the coldest of days.
Think of what else our breath has given,
The words we speak
The prayers we ask,
The portraits on windows
As it fogs up the glass.
I am almost convinced that our lungs love
Even more than our hearts.
For how would our hearts even beat,
If it wasn’t for the breaths we breathe?
