Grateful for each and all of these instants
for this privilege of taking in this sweet
morning air
pushing deep
into my healthy lungs
And taking a giant step
and leap of faith
knowing so many cannot anymore.
I lament those
many last breaths today
across the world
and down the street.
Praying someone inherits their best elements
Before they dissipate
or float away
or turn to dust
So they are not lost forever
And there will be an echo

and a shadow of them
And a scent wafting
among us still.
