I LAY AND WATCH YOU BREATHING..
CATCHING EVERY BREATH..
HOLDING EVERY SECOND...
AFRAID TO LET THEM GO...
YOU ARE MY LIFE..
THE AIR I BREATHE..
I'M BREATHING HARD..
I FEAR I MAY HAVE WOKEN HER....
I HOLD MY BREATH...
SHE GENTLY BREATHES AND GOES
BACK TO SLEEP...
I LET OUT A SIGH OF RELIEF..
MY HEART IS POUNDING...
TAKE DEEP BREATHES....
I CAN ONLY GASP AS I LOOK DOWN..
MY LADY LYING NEXT TO ME....
MY BREATHINGS LABOURED....
LUNGS ARE PUMPING..
DARE I THINK SHE'LL STAY WITH ME..
FOR SUNRISE IT'S ME SHE'LL SEE..
THIS GNARLED AND WRINKLED FACE..
I HOPE SHE WON'T STOP BREATHING..
BUT IF SHE DOES..
I'LL HOLD HER GENTLY IN MY ARMS..
LIKE MY CHILDREN AT THEIR BIRTH..
AND BRING HER BACK TO LIFE........
