Second Chances©

I saw my life flash before my eyes

I saw glimpses of my past and pieces of my future

I heard your voice calling me

Begging for my return

Telling me to hold on

Reminding me of all that I had to live for

I reached for you

But something or someone wasn’t finished with me

There was more I was meant to see

I saw anguish

I saw pain

I saw promise

I saw joy

I sat upon the scale

Trying to balance out my life

There was no going back until I could get it all to work

I saw blood, sweat and tears

I saw my face in the mirror putting in the time and effort

Now I get it

Now I’ve earned the chance

Not just the chance

But a second chance

At life, at love and at feeling

The light that now fills the room

Is me

I’m glowing

Because I’m back

Thanks to you

For wanting me

For needing me

And for giving me a reason to live

I’m grateful and I’m ready

To get back on the horse and begin again

To start anew

Just me and you

I’m so glad for second chances
