A Breath of Air

you saw me before I was born,
The days allotted to me
had all been recorded in your book,
before any of them ever began.

Psalm 139 v16

a breath of air
one breath
one breath of life, and gone

untainted by this World
your fragile existence
held the form of a perfect body
gave a testimony to life

a value magnified
in the painful enormity
of the shattered lives of family
in the struggle
of your precious gift

a glimpse of being
more important than the stars

a breath of air
one breath
one breath of life, and gone –

forever remembered
