Breathe (a rondeau)

When life leaves you blown and gasping,

and in despair you are grasping

all hope. Your injured soul’s aggrieved,

know that with some love you can breathe,

take your heart and keep on clasping


onto good thoughts. Spurn the rasping

storms, negativity blasting .

Know that with confidence you’ll breathe

when life leaves you


doubtful and your spirit’s asking

if it’s darker days are passing

soon. Lights will shine in your relief.

Know that with its strength you will breathe.

Better days are forecasting

when life leaves you.
