Her Last Breath

She clawed her way upon his chest

The pain that wracked her body stole her rest

Medication dulled the pain but never completely took it away

In and out of consciousness, delirious to her surroundings

In her weakness she pulled on his strength 

Because she had none of her own

Tears streaming down his cheeks, through his beard, onto her hair

Thoughts of losing the love of his life was more than he could bear

I have to be strong for her no matter what the outcome is

Lord give us a miracle and let this nightmare end

Her breathing was so shallow he checked to see

If she was still with him or moved on to eternity

Pulling her closer to him to breathe for her once more

A flashback of the years gone by

When everything was great

The memories will be tucked away

In the heart that beats for her

My heart will always beat for you

With every breath I take

Your smile, the twinkle in your eyes 

Our wonderful life together 

Can never be replaced

As she drew her last breath

He whispered in her ear

I’ll always love you

Forever

#Emmanism

There comes a day in just about everyone’s life when they need to distance themselves from people they let in. Through trial and error, heartache and pain they realize the relationship is not working no matter what they do.

Every once in a while I create an Emmanism, which is a little saying or word of wisdom. It may even turn into mini advice which probably no one takes it seriously. Twenty-two hours ago I wrote an Emmanism and want to share it.

Sometimes you have to tell someone they are a ‘WAS’ in your life. #Emmanism

A nice way to tell them bye, bye . . . maybe, maybe not.
