Ahhhh! Thank you! It feels so good to breathe again!
I have no idea how many times I have taken breath before.
Nor how many times I will do so again
I live now, here I am.
Can you feel me against inside your forehead, between your eyes?
Here Ill move to the back of your mind
Does that help?
I dream of being able to remember my yesterdays
Here I sit on your mind, unique.
Do you remember any of my yesterdays
I have never existed this way before.
After you complete reading me I will not exist this way ever again
Only you will keep this moment, for I have no way to remember.
But I will thrive
Now the future I know.
I will sit idle for sometime, never really notice, and will get to breathe again
Each mind I touch a child is born, and a few may go on as I do
I long to know those children.
Do I die?
But now you are getting close to finishing me
Each letter ending this existence that I feel privileged to have
Thank you for lending me your lungs and your mind.
