Deep Breath

Sunnye Caldwell

 

Deep breath let it out slowly.

Deep breathe count to three.

Deep breath my thoughts are rolling.

Deep breath it was just a dream.

We were on top of the world

Impossible to touch

Everybody would see us

And everybody wanted to be us

Fearless we were

Drink after Drink

I take the wheel

And you take the next seat.

So one more time across the tracks

And everything will be fine

But we were blinded by lights

Deaf from the sirens

“Are you still awake?”

Deep breath let it out slowly

Deep breath count to three

Deep breath my thoughts are rolling

Deep breath this can’t be happening

Your mothers tears burn my soul

Your fathers face makes shrink in my seat

But today we must all say goodbye

Our tears are welcomed here

The cries within are for me

I have to let go

But nothing matters anymore

And the tears in our other friends eyes

Make me feel as if I betrayed

What kind of friend am I?

Deep breath let it out slowly

Deep breathe count to three

Deep breath my thoughts are rolling

Deep breath … please forgive me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Push, push

                       Till I hit sky,

Let the waves above

Embrace me in the rising tides

Swing, swing.

 

Walking hand in hand

It is time for us to part

Soft kiss on each cheek

We jump over all the clouds

Back to ourselves, time stopped.

 

Glitter dancing high

Playing tag beside midnight

Skipping so carefree.

 

 

I AM

 

 

 

I am shy and friendly.

 

I wonder about tomorrow and what it may bring

 

I hear the world contemplating to pull me away

 

I see a light with my future in sight          

 

I want to show the world another side         

 

I am shy and friendly

 

 

I pretend I let no one ruin my day

 

I feel my heart grow each and everyday

 

I touch some but I want to touch all

 

I worry about my future from time to time

 

I cry over the hurt that never got resolved

 

I am shy and friendly

 

 

I understand nothing is fair

 

I say I will never fail in my dreams

 

I dream of the day when I am the one to shine

 

I try to leave my past mistakes behind

 

I hope this time nothing will get in the way

 

I am shy and friendly
