for every time
another was –
some other life
I lived
as thought erased
yet given grace
how is it
I survived

with memories
I can’t replace –
can’t give a name
to every face
every kiss
to remember now
I missed

as trade again
on mortal sin
this one more life
to know –
another death
with your faithful breath
warm within
my soul

. . .
