    Her cries into the emptiness
    with one remorse-filled parting glance,
    belied a life hard to confess
    in aftertaste of bitterness,
    which scorned each offered second-chance.

    In hope, no Heaven would dare hold
    her liable for each sordid sin;
    no Bible truth, no glory gold,
    no ransom price paid for her soul
    to cleanse the darkness welcomed in.

    By open arms she was embraced;
    eternity knelt by her bed.
    A whispered gasp was not replaced
    by all the airs her pride laid waste
    as discards for those poorly fed.

    A pity and for mercy's sake,
    forsaking mercy's gentle prod,
    not knowing peace, no peace she'd make.
    No pardoned path to undertake
    when she forsook the love of God.
