Have you ever thought about the gift of breathing?
I never thought how hard it could be to take our breath and live.
Never appreciate how precious that is, I always thought it was easy.
Until I started to keep track of my breaths when I am with you.
I realized that when we are together, you take my breath away.
Discovering that I was busy worshiping the moment I share with you;
That I sometimes forget to take my breath.
Take me wherever you want, buy me whatever you want, I don’t care,
I just want to be breathless, right there beside you.
The feeling that we were getting close to each other,
Made me taste my breath; it was sweeter than ever,
That I want to breathe again and again
I told myself “Calm down, girl. Breathe deeply because this is too good to be true”
Afraid, I had to admit, I was afraid to confess what I feel inside.
Frightened, that you would repel my emotions.
Confused, shall I be able to breathe again if you are not in my life.
Finally, I decided that I could not take the risk of dying.
I shall never risk, losing you.
While talking about all the girls you know,
I guess you never imagined how that rips me inside out.
But I handle the pain, though it hurts every time I try to breathe,
But it is easier than sucking the life out of me.
I used to console myself that you confide in me and that’s enough.
I am your friend; that gives my breath a break to be easily relieved.
Then she comes to your life and I felt that you are drifting away from me,
You talk about her, how special she is, how she makes you laugh,
How you are ready to be with her forever.
You ask about my opinion? I give it to you honestly as a friend
But when I saw you like that, I decided to back off,
I felt that there is no air in my lungs anymore.
And I thought I would fight for you until my last breath.
But you were never meant for me from the start.
My breath deluded me.
You have to know that I am dying inside,
But I can feel how thrilled you are with her.
And I cannot stop feeling happy for you.
Stupid as I am, I decided that my time has come.
I am offering you, the most precious thing I have.
As I know that when you will go,
I will have no more to take.
I will need no more.
Take my breath away and live my love,
Take my breath away.
Inhale…Exhale… Exhale …Exhale…….
