"One Breath Away"

Just a breath away without knowing
The fate you may soon deplore
One breath away without knowing
If the Lord wil give you more.
 
I was found in this very condition
Though not knowing really why
Yes I couldn't find that second breath
No matter How I'd try.
 
Well they found a blockage in my heart
And knew this would relate
Yet more important were my heart values
Some pumping early and others late.
 
They shipped me out of town reall fast
It was neerly in the night
The senic scenes one often sees
Were from my view of flight.
 
I was told it would be easy
For so many had went on before
Yet don't believe for a minute
Until you're in and out that door.
 
Nine days of laying
In some contorted way
That easy bit that i waas told
I'm reminded of each day.
 
Now blessed was the surgeon
and to have the good Lord standing by
Yet I falied my religious conviction
For each day I would ask why!
