Just Breathe

Breathe in  
and hold
and feel that breath
and keep it long
and then 
breathe out

again

breathe in
and hold
and taste the air
the breath you catch
and then
let it go

again

breathe in
and hold
and count that breath
that makes three
and then
count it out

again

breathe in
the fourth breath
you will breathe
nine hundred more
this hour
breathe out

again

breathe in
and now you see
the multiples
how many times
you will ever breathe
breathe out

again

breathe in
how many left
in this life
is this the last
it takes your breath away
breathe out

just breathe
