breath of choice

at the moment of choosing
on the cusp of choice
on the verge of running
for fear of losing my voice

a pause at the edge
to steady my heart
one life must end
for another to start

gathering courage
sorting out thought
understanding feelings
so long i had fought

i look in Your eyes
i know this is right
the breath that was mine
will be ours from tonight

i take the breath
i've held for so long
feel You in the breath
and my fear is gone

stepping over the edge
once seemed far to fall
with You in my lungs
not far at all

skin tingling
not bantering
straight feelings
a refreshing zing
