This Breath

Life is what it is…
We are born
and we die…
and in between these two
we fill our lives
with joy and pain
laughter and tears
and all the unexpectedness
of all the things
that disrupt our plans
We hold no promises
for anything more
or anything less
So savor for now
this breath you take
for tomorrow eternity may begin
and life may truly be
only this…
and nothing more
Except what we’ve filled it with

I posted this one month after my father passed away. How bittersweet it is to me.
