BREATH

BREATH

Is it possible
To cradle your neck
More than I have done?
To whisper you to rest,
To coax you to sleep
When the battle is done
And all the suffering
Ended in silence,
Til the tears are wiped
From your eyes?

You are all that is gentleness.
Kindness rests on your lips,
No harm has come
From your brow.
Fall now, forever,
To a place that is infinite.
Swim with your sweetest
Imaginings.
Let the day drift
Into night.
