This is another new poem, and it is spiritual in nature. I really like the way it came together and I hope that you will too.
I stood atop the mountain
and I looked God in the eye.
And I said, “Oh Lord, forgive me
on this, the day I die.”
He just smiled and took my hand,
and sent me on my way.
“It’s not your time to be here”
is what I heard Him say.
He said, “listen to your heart
and hear your brother’s cry.
You’ve got some time ahead of you,
give life, another try.”
When I awoke, I felt great peace,
as if my soul was new.
But, I stood atop that mountain,
and that, I swear is true!
