Breath

Oh, the brevity of life.
A kiss, a sigh, a wave goodbye.

Please stay a moment longer. Please tarry just a bit. Please. Just... please.

Do your fingers feel number? Are your feet a little colder? Is God a little nearer?

I understand. I don't understand. I fear. I do not fear. Please stay. Please go. Please, above all, have God's abiding peace.

Goodbye, goodbye. We will meet again, by and by.

Don't fear, Daddy's here. He will comfort you in the dark cold night. He promises a warm, eternal light.

Peace. Oh abiding peace. Please stay and never leave.
