Second Life

July 17, 2008
By Jacob Boswell, Springfield, VA

Today she begged for heaven
to catch her when we die
so she could live her second life
if God will let her try

Today she asked for sleep
so she could dream again
to fall into a second life
when stars declare day's end

Today she asked for anything
to end the hell she's in
be it sleep or death
or a first love's breath
she needed life to begin

The tragic light
behind this fright
is sadly seldom seen

You don't need death for heaven, love
you dont need sleep to dream.
