The End

by Jeanie Killion


I came to the very

last page

in the book

and read

these words:

The End.


I wept

deeply-drawn tears

for it was

The Book of

My Life.


I crawled into bed,

inconsolable,

sure I was

done-for;

hopeless.


Finally,

sleep took me

away from my

troubled thoughts &

into my dreams.


That's where I was,

still staring

in devastation

at that page

of my life, when


You said,

"Why are you crying?"

I pointed to the page.

You looked at the words

And smiled.


Then, I said,

"Why are You smiling?"

You turned the page

and pointed at

the words:


"New Beginning."

You actually laughed

at the look on my face

when I saw that

there were more pages.


You said,

"Behold, I make

all things new!"

I awoke,

joyfully laughing.


Thank you!

Thank you!

. . . for taking my

last page & making it

my next page.


The Beginning,

Again.
