A breath of life

by cricketjeff on June 6, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I feel your sleeping breath upon my skin
A kind of gentle sigh that draws me in
And then it’s in my ear, that leads to sin
I love your life

Relaxing by your side, we lie and sigh
Your breathing moves your chest to catch my eye
An idea in my mind that starts to fly
I love your life

You whisper words of love that I can hear
I breathe a soft response that draws you near
The way you move your arms it’s very clear
You love my life

But now I have to wait and lie in hope
I can only throw a line and hold the rope
To try to help you live we have to cope
So fight for life!
