No air caressed my fingers held close as I watched, desperate for one more rise and fall of his chest. There was no final whisper, no sign at all. It seemed as if it happened at once yet I imagine over time there must have been a million breaths. A million breaths gone unnoticed until there were none at all.

It's been awhile since I've participated in a 3ww challenge. Here's my re-entry.

a moment that sinks into one's thought and yet repeat over and over again as if for the first time, very provoking thought words

"A million breaths gone unnoticed" - that's the line that gets me, I wonder even as I take millions of breathe, will I notice myself when I'm not breathing
