Get Rid Of The Advertisements

SEARCHING FOR AIR
 
Who could remember one forgotten breath
I do! And it scared me half to death
Triple bypass then in recovery
Woke up ; breathing machine - terrified me


I kept trying to tell people in the room
I was going to die and it was soon
I felt like I was drowning; just conceive
You see, I felt I had no air left to breathe


Finally they realize what your trying to say
Take care of the situation right away
I just thought, thank God, I am alive
Not knowing at all would I survive


I learned a lot about breath those weeks
What it takes sometimes to even speak
Trying to find the way to breath so you
Can start therapy -walking down the hall too


I've written before a poem on Learning How To Breathe
Which most people find hard I'm sure to conceive
But there's a way you have to learn again
You'd think it's just breathing out and breathing in


Oh, but no! Anyone whose had this to do
Will tell you that it's something you renew
The day came for me to finally try
It hurt so bad I really wanted to cry


The Therapist taught me this to say
Which taught me how to breathe that day
You 'breathe in to smell the flowers'
You 'breathe out to blow out the candles'


And that was it! Just one forgotten breath
Could at sometime really lead to death
And so, I tried to walk for a few days
They found I had massive bloodclots, what to say


It's a long story, not a poem, I was there 5 weeks
I almost died there twice ..but here I am to speak
A long recovery and so many hills to climb
But thanks be to God, now I breathe...and it is mine!


If you ever find yourself in some distress
I hope you can remember this little cue
To breathe in the flowers; blow out the candles
It may just be the thing that saves you too!
