I’m Breathing Again


A tattered umbrella in the dampness of spring 

Seemed fitting for me   

Until we discovered one another   

And you offered sanctuary 

A paper fan in the summer blaze  

I was content to wave  

Until I found you 

And you brought me shade   

Tracking autumn leaves behind

I adjusted to their rustle

Then you came and cleaned them off   

Showed me the beauty of silence 


In winter I would shiver   

I was used to being cold 

You found me full of chills  

And wrapped me in your coat   


When my soul was lost in darkness 

And I settled for embers

You pulled back the blinds  

And we watched the sun rise together
