I feel His breath,
it breathes within.
And it whispers,
of forgiven sin.

I fell His breathing,
it makes me moan.
And in my delight,
I joyfully groan.

For I know I need,
His breath to live.
And I must inhale,
so He can forgive.

I feel the movement,
the wings of His love.
And He descends on me,
like a pure white dove.

I feel His hope,
a breath of fresh air.
And He does answer,
my hearts every prayer.

For I am a sinner,
I breathe in my pride.
And from His breath,
I cannot run or hide.

I feel His wonder,
I breathe in His grace,
And it radiates,
from my forgiven face.

I feel His goodness,
I breathe in holiness.
And soon I am filled,
with His loveliness.

I feel His breath,
forever I believe in Him.
And I am no longer,
a fruitless dying limb.

For He gave me life,
in one single breath.
And I'll breathe Him in,
until my earthy death.

A good piece of poetry. needs a little more fine tuning though.Perhaps you could work a little more on your rhyming words. The lilt and length would be better if you read it aloud as you write!

This is based on hope and faith, the two things that keep us moving toward Christ, who is the only One who can save us.
