‘just One More’ - Poem by Emily Moore

So he sits, candle alight
All of his dreams, torn in a night
He cries for God to hear his plea
‘Please, please give her back to me’
His heart is breaking, as he chokes on love
Her frail body gave all that it could
But to many things had gone on inside
And if it wasn’t for him she wouldn’t have died
‘Go on, just one more’
Just one more and she hit the floor
Her frozen body lay still with the night
He cries for her with the candle alight
He begs that she is still alive
There’s a lesson to be learnt, don’t drink and drive.
