Last Breath

by Peter Notehelfer

What is it
that makes a breath?
What allows us to receive birth
then compels us to return death
for the kiss of a child
all unafraid?

So it was
that Kaci kissed Lee
That he knew her kiss at the last
then smiled his whispered peace
took one last breath
died blessed
