I have lived a good life, have loved, and worked, and played,
but the time has come, I’ve been unwell, …and now I’m going away.

Soon I’ll choose to take a last breath, it will be peaceful as I lay,
listen for me in the birds visiting the garden each morning, bringing in the day.

And say my name ...Aleka.

Prompt: Take a Breath
