Life's plea by Grant Harbison

Bitterly do I say to thee
From death’s door I cannot flee
For shadows from the threshold beckon to me
Exacerbating my fear and uncertainty
Death looms
It doesn’t refrain
It’s impervious to my misery
Pitiless to my pain
Lord please grant me reprieve
Just allow me to believe
If only I could start again
With peaceful prosperity and never yen
With the strength to endeavour
Living each day with waxing fervour
A new path to follow
One where I can shine
If only this life had been mine
