Bridge Between Life and Death
Author: Lesley Voth
As you know with every breath
It is a bridge between life and death
With all the anxiety and our stress
Breathing deep will make it less
You have seen the vegetation in the cold
Goes to sleep, slows breathing, looks brown and old
But in the spring its like a breath of fresh air
Its warmer, bright, nature takes a deep breath, a colorful affair
So when you are feeling down and a little stressed
Taking a deep slow breath is surely the best
It has been proved it will help you be happy and healthy
Sooth your soul, and be abundant in all things wealthy
Start your day well and be conscious of your breath
Feel it because it is the bridge between life and death
This is fascinating. No wonder I get tired at night with all that activity going on inside of my body.

I would not change a thing.

Upon discussion of depth the other day
We asked would we do it any other way
Between our group the majority said yes
I had to give this a great deal of thought I confess
My conclusion was I would not change a thing
Beautiful places, friends, experiences my life did bring
It was not always a bed of roses, there were difficult times, some heartache
But those experiences lead me in a direction I would probably never normally take
I would not have my beautiful boys
I would not have “Bobby” my motorbike, my exhilarating toys
I would not have met the wonderful people in my life
I would not know pleasure without some strife.
I may not have traveled and seen such beauty as I did
I may not have met my husband, heaven forbid.
They say that God has a plan for us all
We are in the right place, we should relax and stand tall
I know my life will be busy and a lot of things to do yet
God still has some great experiences for me I bet
So yes the answer is no I would not change a thing
I look back at all that I have done, now I look forward to what those experiences will bring.
