Everybody’s Breath

In this fragile life,
I burn candles
In the incense room.

I utter prayers
In secret places
For gentle souls.

I return with my memories
To joyful times
And forget unpleasant thoughts.

There will be coffins
To gaze into
And one in which to lie,

But I cherish everybody’s breath
And know we’ve gained more in living
Than we’ll ever lose in death.
