Beautiful Breath


Rises and falls

Expands and deflates

Silently softly

Beautiful breath

What makes the breath breathe

Its not conscious me

Amazing this engine that

Breathes itself easily

I deepen my breath

I stop even my breath

But I am not in control

There’s a force with a goal

Drawing in to my lungs

Filling me to the max

Until my life force

Lets me empty relax

What miracle is this

That gives me this life

Right through til my death

Oh beautiful breath
