One Breath

One breath in and I try to slow my heart
The beating a fast rhythm that I did not start
One breath out and I can feel the strain 
Pulling at my insides causing such intense pain

One look backwards and I can see the broken path
A road disrupted tragically, all that's left an aftermath
One look ahead and I see the continuation of that road
I realize I am alone but must continue onward and forward

One fist clenched as I try to make sense of my life without
Don't understand why it happened or what loves really about
One hand opened and I try to reach beyond this
I still want to find that true love, that true spirit, that true kiss

One foot frozen as I fear the choices I must still make
Trust and honesty something that I simply cannot forsake
One foot forward as I face a chance of getting hurt again
Excited and afraid, I know that this scenario is not the end

One breath in and I have a vision of something new
A life that has promise, a road that again will have two
One breath out as I let go of the past and smile toward the sun
He is still out there, my true love forever is still yet to come.

Both eyes open this time.
