Free To Deeply Breathe, Again - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

On my way to feeling lost and blue...
I remembered what you said,
About inviting dread.

And I found myself standing,
By a closed window.
Prepared to open it...
For a breath of fresh air.

And there with the air to flow,
I let go of my held grief.
And there with the air to flow,
I felt free to deeply breathe,
Again!

And on this day to you I say,
You are the reason I have chosen happiness.
You are the reason I gave myself to love again!
A love within me I thought I knew.
But it was kept inside of me...
Not allowing it to grow as I believed I grew!

On my way to feeling lost and blue...
I remembered what you said,
About inviting dread.

And I found myself standing,
By a closed window.
Prepared to open it...
For a breath of fresh air.
And as I stood there...
I felt free to deeply breathe,
Again!
To love and do it without fear,
Again!
