A Breath Away

Itís been said
In the past
No pain, no sorrow
Nor heartache last

That times a filter
And a thief
That takes the hurt
And binds the grief

Two years have gone
Since you went
And this time
Has left me bent

At work, at play
And at rest
I drag on
And try my best

Searching, looking
For a light
Something firm
To hold on tight

Where you are
I long to be
It seems so far
Is there a key

Just one breath
Between us two
One breath away
To be with you

I listen closely
For your voice
To spur me on
Toward the choice

Another day
Another year
Still no voice
Do I hear


The longing grows
My heart it fails
As time erodes
Each dayís a nail

I look upward
For some hope
In the darkness
My soul does grope

Then He speaks
I hear Him say
Iím here my son
A breath away
