Behold 

The other 

Face to

Face

Breathing freely 

Deeply 

Hold hands 

Greet

Speak, sing 

Laugh

Loudly 

But now

Appreciated 

Every moment 

Held

Then…

Too quickly 

Rushed 

Easily, unthinking 

Bread deemed basic 

Seen, dismissed

Now bread dough 

In all our hands 

Treasured

How our own generations  

Did it before 

Our own history 

Recovery

Recovery…

Of breath

Of savouring 

Every bite 

To nourish 

To see 

To be

The important things 

Not out there

No

It’s not rushing out to 

Seek 

To find 

To strive

It’s You

And Me

Face to 

Face
