Relay Race

She took my breath

Away until she made

My soul decay,

Each heart beat was

A relay race but there

Was not a finish line

To cross after

These hurdles

Were faced,

I’ve learned to find

Strength within the

Pain because without

Pain there is no need

For faith,

Without storms and

Rain we wouldn’t appreciate

Sunny days,

So let the storm rain down on

This relay race so I can

Breathe again
