elohai neshama

my g-d of soul
blessed are
for leaving traces
of our souls
as our bodies fall 
and all that remains is the sea of our tears
thank you for reminding us
of the hidden breath 
the raspy rapt blessing bound up inside us each day
that we are alive 
when the world
when we least expect to be
we are
