Let Me Catch My Breath – Written Thursday March 18th 2021 (Aged 46)

Let Me Catch My Breath

hold on…
let me catch my breath
did we just pass our dreams
on our way to certain death?

hold on…
did we just fall out of the sky
as we pulled the chord on our parachute
just hoping we could fly

tell me,
what goes on
when the years have piled up
like a pile of rubbish
in the corner of your favourite room

tell me,
what happened
to eager wide eyed hugs
and deeply layered tracks
trains of adventure
and never coming back

hold on…
let me catch my breath
did we get the results we wanted
from the unfathomable test
the one,
that made me feel tight in my chest
