The Gift

I breathe in

the gift of Infinite Spirit.

I pause.

I breathe out

what my human self

has done with this gift

and what that gift

has done with me.

I breathe in.

I pause.

I breathe out –

until at last

my human self

takes its final breath

and returns

to a place

beyond human form.
