Somewhere not to far from here....Born Again.


Born Again

.  ©-MFB III 

He was the

First book from

the new testament,
and the fondest

look at my

love expressed,
Matthew, my


beach baby,
23 short

verses ago.

How does fate

choose the

forever young?

Such a precious life,

erased too soon.
This cherished chapter

of my life closed,
much like the

bible at his funeral.

I long to crawl

into his picture,
and hold him

close again,
in his pure and

perfect state.

Perhaps that is

what heaven is,
perhaps in the last

chapter of my book,
when I at long

last reach the end
somewhere in its

Revelations I will find,
him runnning

to me on

stubby little legs,
arms wide,

smiling brightly,
on the shores of

a distant paradise,
born again.

This is very beautiful but exposes lots of pain.
