My Life Closed Twice - Poem by Emily Dickinson

My life closed twice before its close--
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third event to me

So huge, so hopeless to conceive
As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell.

    John and Sagnik have hit the nail on the head with their comments. When I first read the poem I wondered if she had had two near-death experiences, but it could be indeed that she is referring to the deaths of other loved ones. (Report) Reply
