All That Remains

©2014 Louise Gallagher

When I breathe
let my breath be expanded
out to embrace all of life
filling me up
with endless possibility
urging me to leap.

When I love
let my heart be broken
wide open
let my body be consumed
by love’s endless calling
me to let go.

When I leave
let my flame be burned
out completely
let me be consumed
by the flames of life
carrying me away.

When I am gone
let my memories consume
the hurts and pains
I’ve caused and known
so that all that remains
is Love.
