A Second Chance
It happened on a gloomy day,
I weaved and lost control.
I thought I’d see the end of it,
But God refused to take my soul.
My fate was shattered on the spot,
I heard a sound and saw clear skies,
Like an endless murky dream,
I saw life pass before my eyes.
"Dear Lord", I shout, "please set me free,
for I have goals yet to achieve".
I caught a frown that turned into a smile,
followed by a whisper, “I shall relieve”.
My eyes unlock, my heart starts beating.
Is this reality or am I dreaming?
I look to my right and see them staring,
I calm myself as I start tearing.
On my left, a paramedic yells,
”You’ll be alright, I give my word",
Feelings of despair start to overtake,
as my heart is stricken with a sword.
Did I deserve a second chance?
I can not say, yet I feel blessed.
On my journey down to the ground,
I felt no longer dispossessed.
I know not how I still stand here,
but how I owe my life to Him,
For He has let me back on Earth,
by shining light to a soul once dim.
