With My Last Breath



With my last breath

Let me taste of you

Your honeyed dew

Your sweet abiding kiss


With my last breath

Let me love you dear

And hold you near

All the things that I will miss


With my last breath

Let me say again

You’re my best friend

You’re what makes me whole


With my last breath

Let me touch your hair

And my love swear

To your beautiful, treasured soul


With my last breath

Let me see your face

Feel your embrace

The love forever true


With my last breath

Let me speak these words

Remembered when heard

“I’ll always be in love with you”

      I didn’t think about it when I chose to post this, but with all you have going on in your life, I can see how this would be impactful. I can only hope that it holds as much hope as it does tears for you! I feel your pain and share your love! ❤💕🥰😘

        It’s neither really hope nor fear. It helps with acceptance. Which is a good place to be. One of us is going to have to leave the other eventually. It’s inevitable. No one is ever prepared whether they know it’s coming or not, but I can take comfort in knowing that if he goes first, I’ll still carry his love. And I’ve saved this poem, so I can look back on it whenever I need that reminder. Thank you, my favorite poet. ❤🥰😘 It’s also comforting to know if he does go before me, I have friends like you who are going to see me through it. 🤗🤗 Sending you so many hugs!!

        And you said, tears not fears. My eyes are still watery, but they are good tears. Not quite healing tears, but definitely warm, comforting, and feeling so full of love tears. ❤
