We all have a finite number of breaths we will take in our lifetime. Each breath is one closer to the last.

I can’t decide if I should breathe slower, cherishing each one and take my time, or breathe faster, speeding up to the last page of this story.

I suspect I’ll know which breath will be my last when it comes, but will I know the second to last? Will that be the one that matters most?

Slower or faster… I’ll make sure to inhale a little deeper each time, if for no other reason than to make sure I get my fill.
