Nan

So frail

You are always so strong, so in charge of everything
I’m not used to seeing you like this
Shaking from the pain
You look so small
Yet
Still so radiant
You are the queen
The one we look up to
The glue

You look so small in that bed
And I’m just sitting here across from you
Listening to you breathe

I listen to everyone breathe
It’s the most beautiful sound
And the most comforting
The sweetest reminder that we are here
Together
There is one world
And millions of lives
And our two paths intertwined
And here we are breathing
And I’m watching you
And loving you
And I’m just so happy to hear the inhale
And the exhale
And the inhale
And the exhale
Of this life we are living
And sharing
Like a story
We are the paper
And we are the pens
And we are breathing…
