Because I know how brief this moment can be, how quickly it can all change; I sing.
Because there was a time when all I could do was breathe; let alone speak; I sing.
Often loud, sometimes obnoxiously, but always because I’m free; I sing.
I know there will come a time again when I will not want to, a time again when I will struggle to breathe, but that time is not now.
Because now I am happy; I sing.
