Breathe in the elixir of life,
Cast off your doubt. 
In every breath there's strife. 
Let it in; let it out.

Breathe in the hot breath of love,
Passion is worth the price. 
Feel her breathing from above. 
Love and don’t think twice.

Breathe in the aroma of the wine. 
And its sensuous allure. 
Bouquet and body do entwine,
To satisfy the cure.

Breathe deep the air of life. 
For the water's unforgiving. 
Raging waters running rife,
Are not for the breathing. 

Breathe in all you can,
Before your days are through. 
Drawing lines in the sand,
Won't do much for you.

Just breathe.
