I Can’t Wait to Exhale

You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

I can’t wait to exhale and take in the air
we need to breathe, bringing visible life
the moment we emerge, powering everything
that lies beneath.
Like the trees need the air to dance,
their leaves tickling with each gust of the breeze,  I can’t
wait to exhale and take it all in, feel my chest expand with such ease.
For you’re what I need to keep on living, you’re what I crave
to stay alive; take me away from you and I’m lost forever, no longer
able to thrive.
I can’t wait to exhale and take you all in, deep within me
where the darkness lies, banishing the sadness that sleeps
within me, bringer of life in sweet disguise.
