BREATHE FOR ME

Breathe 4 me, when I’m drowning
From the overwhelming current of life’s
Series of unfortunate events.

Breathe 4 me, when the closing of heavens
Outpouring of inspiration has sifted away
My thirst and passion 4 more.

Breathe 4 me, when the realization of
Unfulfilled dreams has taken its toll on my soul
And induced a spirit of self-doubt.

Breathe 4 me, when the child
In my heart is no longer eager 2 please
Nor anxious 2 love.

Breathe 4 me, when the soldier
In my soul has no more fight in him from years
Of battle against unknown enemies.

Breathe 4 me, when I can breathe no more
4 myself, not out of obligation, but out of love
4 what is and what was.

Breathe for me, because the only thing that is infinite and eternal
Is God and Love…Breathe for Me.
