Ten More Seconds

Long gaze back, focus on a distant nothing.
Exhale, release the bitter knowing and the fear.
Inhale, to live again and to continue
Exhale, each and every unshed tear.

Inhale, to rise again and just to be
Every breath, four more beats apart.
Ten more seconds traveled.
From the ground zero of his fractured heart.
