Breathing You


In an ordinary day, when life takes over 
Expending more energy than I have to give
My head is spinning and I’m feeling dizzy 
I stop for moment and breathe you in

~Three deep breaths~ with thoughts of you     
Only then can I do what I have to do 
You give me the strength to carry on 
You’re the music to my soul’s tranquil song

At night, before I can relax my body 
I need to hear that you’ll watch over me
~Three deep breaths~ as I close my eyes  
I sleep undisturbed in a peaceful night 

And wake to feel your gentle touch 
The things you’ve said which mean so much
Come floating back as if still a dream  
Then can my day can begin again

An ordinary day, when I’m busy with life
~Three deep breaths~ with you on my mind

    3rd line from last, there are one too many "can" words. :) Otherwise, these lines represent the end result of heart & oxygen beating as one. We all could use a sense of security. Nicely done.
