I forgot to breathe
and somewhere
I forgot to be

I neglected myself
my very essence
held captive
by worry and fear

I forgot to breathe
to be so carefree
To dance with the wind
to live as I once knew how

God, help me
teach me to remember
show me something new
remind me to breathe

When a love was
snatched from me
my heart left my chest
and my life left me alone

But now I remember life
even without love
that life that worked its magic
and then taught, brought me love

I want to dance again, dear wind.
oh, sun, teach me to laugh again
dear waters, teach me to talk
oh night, teach me to whisper

Life, teach me
Show me again how to be
and Love, come to me
introduce us once again

Life has taught me to breathe
Day has taught me to smile
Laughter will soon show his face
Ah, how I welcome life and love!

I've missed you so!
