So long ago…

You found me half dead
fingers shriveled
lips sewn shut
eyes turned backward
no breath to exhale.

You poured over me
the water of your mouth
the fire of your touch
sunlight from every corner
breath from your own breath.

You remade me from myself:
I sprout fresh growing
I sing all songs of life
I see the loveliness of the world
everywhere and endless.
