Alive Again


I'm all alone,
It's dark in here,
And for some reason,
I'm filled with fear,

All I remember,
Is walking 'cross the street,
And the bright headlights,
That knocked me off my feet,

I'm in so much pain,
I see a white light,
The light's so warm,
And so bright,

I start walking,
Towards the light,
But then I hear,
A familiar voice,

More start to join it,
They plead in my ears,
They tell me to stay,
With them now here,

I start to walk back,
The pain is intense,
But I don't want to leave,
I want to stay here,

I see someone now,
She holds out her hand,
I can't see her face,
But I do trust her,

I grab her hand,
She leads me away,
I see another light,
It's softer this time,

We stop at the light,
I want to walk through,
The bright light it beckons,
But I don't want to go,

She doesn't come with me,
But I see her face,
She's an old friend,
That died before me,

I tell her goodbye,
She smiles and waves,
I walk through the light,
And everything fades,

I open my eyes,
A friend's holding my hand,
They seem so relieved,
I'm alive again.

    She doesn't come with me,
    But I see her face,
    She's an old friend,
    That died before me,
    although I seriously doubt I'LL go to heaven, I hope that's what happens when I die. This poems great 10/10 (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
