If You Stop Breathing

if you stop breathing, I will follow...

if you stop breathing, I will follow… (Photo credit: Dead Air)

If you stop breathing I’ll follow he said
Down through the whirlwind, wherever I’m led
Six feet so deep in earth and in stone
Holding your hand so you’re never alone

If you stop breathing I’ll hold you he cried
Love that’s eternal is never denied
Here in my arms where our romance has bled
Down through the whirlwind, wherever I’m led

If you stop breathing I’ll join you he prayed
Never to falter and never dismayed
If you stop breathing I’ll follow he said
Down through the whirlwind, wherever I’m led

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
