One Last Breath 'An Als Poem' - Poem by Lore Me34

I used to take for granted the very air I breathe.
Now these days I am begging God for one last breath.
One last breath so that I may see my love ones face.
One last breath so I may smell spring flowers as they bloom.
One last breath so I may get a final taste of my favorite food.
One last breath so I may kiss my love goodbye.
I know with ALS I am asking for a lot when I ask for one last breath.
