If I Could Breathe – Draft #2


 

If I could breathe,

I’d tell you everything.

If I could breathe,

I’d do it all.

 

Everything’s gonna

be alright now.

If I can breathe,

I’ll work it out.

 

If I could breathe,

I’d take it all in.

Learn to sail about.

Maybe I’d even

learn the Cha-Cha.

I think I could

Figure it out.

If I Could Breathe is a poem I started writing for my father, months before his death.  I never quite got to a Final Draft, but I’m going to share with you the few drafts I did complete.


 

If I Could Breathe – Draft #1

 

If I could breathe

I’d tell you everything.

If I could breathe

I’d spit it out.

 

But there’s no way

to get it out now.

No longer can I scream

or shout.

 

Other than that,

I’m feeling fine.

At least most

of the time.
