Breathe - Poem by TSOHGEHT SHEEHY

Take the time to breathe.
Life's journey can't always be,
everything we planned to receive.
Not all at once anyway.

With every bump along the way,
our spirit strengthens oh so subtly.
The changes won't be felt and they aren't seen.
Not until that next bump pops up,
and rears it's ugly head at our feet.
That's when we'll realize.
What once brought tears to our eyes?
No longer makes us cry.
It's now taken all in stride.

What's amazing! Those bump's,
we perceive as setbacks or untimely happenings.
Were actually life detours,
on a road to unexpected things.
Like the way GOD lead you right to me.

With every bump I've endured along the way.
My faith that GOD was leading me
to better days has never swayed.
And over the past few years,
step by step with prayer and faith
things are back in place.
Now GOD has you in my life
and it's all through his amazing grace.

At one point falling in love again
never crossed my mind.
Now I just want you to know.
that no matter where you are
I'm always by your side.
