Breathing Lessons

Have you ever held your breath hoping that nothing changes, that you don’t upset what seems to be an oh so delicate balance? Or held your breath hoping for that one outcome, the one you scarcely dared to dream of, the one wish you wanted to come true? It’s like when you were a kid and wished all year for a new bike for Christmas. Waking up, walking down the hall and looking towards the tree, you held your breath, scared that if you breathed, you’d maybe just mess things up; Santa would snatch back that bike. Funny how we still do that as adults. At least, I do.

I’ve found myself literally and figuratively holding my breath for a while. But you are teaching me, showing me that it is okay to breathe. That my breathing won’t make you disappear. That life in general with all of its hard times, inconveniences and surprises won't make you disappear. A missed phone call is not the end of things. The past is just that, past.

It just seems like it has been so long that I have waited for this, and it seemed so unreal. But every day, as life rolls on, and we roll with it, it gets more and more real. I wouldn't trade a minute of this real with you for an hour of some shallow half truth. With every time that you are there for me, that you do what you say you will, with every touch, every kiss, every time you open your heart to me, you are showing me that I can breathe again.

I had all but given up
On finding the one that I could fall into
On the day before you.
I was ready to settle for
Less than love and not much more
There was no such thing as a dream come true
Oh, but that was on the day before you.

I know your just posting Sunney, basically just to hear yourself, but I wanted to say Congradulations, couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

Long live the lonesome road, that led him straight to you.

Just like Heaven said, Congtratulations, you deserve this so much.

Hugs for the both of ya's... okay, and gropes for Heaven. Funny how you can find the best people, the best friends, in places where you wouldn't expect it at all. You guys are so great.

Ooops, that should've been: God bless the broken road that led him straight to you, my bad.
