Breathe, love

Breathe, love

I can still see the sparkle in your eyes
even when tears get in the way.
I sense the wheezing in your breath
even when you compose yourself.
I feel the hurricane inside your head
even with your eyes shut.
I know the train of your thoughts
even with your mouth unopen.

I say “breathe, love” because you need it.
I say “breathe, love” because you have to.
I say “breathe, love” because you know
like I know.

So I say “breathe, love” just because
breathe, really.
Breathe.
