is the number of days until the anniversary


is the number of breaths I have taken through the year since

One. the day you shined down on me from above… that cold day… I know you remember

Two. the day you woke me from deep within my dreams… I had forgotten your voice

Three. the day a new life came into this world… a beautiful soul with our eyes

Four. the same day I knew you would not see new life come from me…


is the number of years you will be gone in four days. I will sit and ponder five and six and seven and I know there will be more breaths. For now they are still labored.
