First and last companion

chest swells
    lungs expand
receiving deep draught of air
    which heart pumps
infusing blood with oxygen
    nexus of felt rhythyms
inhale    exhale
    breathing reconciles body to self
how comforting this closeness
    snug within
servicing vital need
    ah tis grand
throb and pulsation
putting pain aside
    where it belongs
suffering to be alive
    one life and one destiny
    ah me    ah me
tis thou and i
    dearest inspiration
together twain
    both faithful
one indrawn breath
    let out
first and last companion
