Head Rush

... There will always be just one final breath...

(c) 2017 David & Sandra Ireland


I could be anywhere

Anywhere at all

Walking the streets

Awaiting your call

Leaving my body

Soaring away

Touching the light

Is this the day?

It’s life and death

It’s the final breath

Head rush


It’s the temple bell

It’s heaven and hell

Head rush


We do not choose the moment we arrive

We do not choose how many nights

Departure time rewinds uncharted

Live fearlessly,

And open-hearted

Until the final breath

With your name forever on my tongue

Head rush


I could be anywhere

Anywhere at all

Walking the streets

Awaiting your call

Leaving my body

Soaring away

Touching the light

Is this the day?

And know that I loved you

A lifetime long and more

My star is above you

Just watch how I soar

Head rush...
