Breath of Life~by Annie Johnson

Painting: Power of Love by Freydoon Rassouli


Breath of Life

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

My happiness floats on the trills of your laughter –
And the sacred light waves from your eyes.
Wave after wave of love’s deep communion
Drown me in thoughts of you with carefree abandon –
A soft, loving mist born from the womb of time.
You come to me from crushing eons of longing –
On soul prayers scrawled across the pale sky;
Describing a need and unquenchable desire
Carried from wind-swept paths of infinity.
Somewhere in illusion’s towering presence, you came,
An unforgettable image, dwelling in my soul;
Beauty personified caressing my thought waves;
Not born of imagination, for I knew you were real.
You, my answered prayer, flew to me in a rush,
Bringing with you all the love I had longed for,
That I might come to life on your in-drawn breath.
