Loving You -2


Loving You
Like an infant’s first breath
Rushing into eager lungs
And the piercing cry that follows
Marking the start of a new life

Loving You
Like the intake of breath
Following a near drowning,
The joy of sucking in air
And gratitude for another shot at life

Loving You with desperation
Like a man choking
And thrashing about
Struggling to get air into
Lungs that are burning

Loving You,through thick and thin
Like a tired swimmer,
Faint and at wit’s end
Yet taking one more stroke
Towards the shore

Loving You deeply
Like an ant burrowing
Deep into the soil
To hide from the scorching sun-
The deeper, the cooler

Loving You with all my soul
Like a mother hen
Braving the wrath of the hawk
As it stoops and gather her chicks under her wings

Loving You with all I am
It is life
It is the beginning
It is the end
And everything in between
