Lovely Way To Die / Second Chances - Poem by Practicing Poetess
What a lovely way to die
In the arms of the one who loves you
Some must die alone; No lie
For they have no one to hold onto.
Young love hopes to live forever
Far from them are thoughts of death.
And are they prepared? No, never
When they draw their final breath.
Please remember her in beauty
When across your mind she dances.
Life goes on; you did your duty
Know that love gives second chances.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
A poem by another member called 'Forever Young' touched me so much, that I wrote this in reply.
Another inspiration for my poem was poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning's death in the arms of her husband, poet Robert Browning. Her last word before dying was, 'Beautiful', attributed to a glimpse into the afterlife.
