Take My Breath Away

Breathtaking Sunrise

You took my breath away.
Those days in the past,
every time I saw you,
I felt like gasping
for much needed air.
It was during those times
I felt conscious
that I really was alive.
I was breathing.
When I was with you,
I was breathless with
hopeful joy.

Then, you took my breath away.
I couldn’t breath.
I felt trapped
Over and over,
I flailed.
Bit by bit,
I died.
And just about
when i was ready
to close my eyes,
there he was.

He took my breath away,
with a smile.
He took my breath away
and gave it back.
As you clung tighter,
He let me free.
As you made promises,
he made me laugh.
As you showered me with gifts,
he showed me faith.

You told me before you left,
“You take my breath away.
Even now with your eyes so sad,
I still feel captivated by you.
There are so many things to say.
But one thing you make me feel,
even if I can not stay,
You will always take my breath away.”
