Until My Last Breath


NGC 6572

You are up there, on a pedestal
No one is even close to where you are
You are so high, my heart put you there
So don’t ever look down on them
Not a soul to you is worth to compare

When I said you are the only one
I meant it in a singular kind of way
Because no matter what happens
It’s always you, in my heart, in my mind
Memories, that is what they are to me

Did I ever lie to you? I have not
All that I do is speak of my love for you
Of how you paint my life with so much hue
There is nothing to doubt, I am yours
All of me, all of my being, even my life

If there is something I would keep
When finally it’s time to face death
It would be my unwavering love for thee
In my final moment, your hand I shall grip
My last word, your name, my final breath

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

I love the gist to this poem. And I remember I just watched A Little Bit of Heaven- the movie of Kate Hudson where she has colon cancer, she finally took her last breath when her boyfriend, Julian, said I love you to her. It is so inspiring yet so sad.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
