This not once, but twice

To read this not once but twice
Is like beckoning cold with ice
I ask thee to not judge thy own word
Flooding from thy heart

But human are we and life could see
Just who we were really meant to be

Judge me? I think you shall
Only to think none to well
But do not think to quick

Or life's lesson you shall miss it
I ask thee not once but twice
Think of what the world has to offer
And let your words be softer

Do not let the tears blind your path
For misery likes company...
I can say on my behalf

I ask thee not once but twice
To look at what the world really is
For no one truly remembers
What is in those embers...

Of life.

We are the beginning and we will be the end
So cherish all my friend
For we may never know
How to let go..

Remember this not once but twice
For death is cold as ice
