Revisiting Death

To plead
For more time
To bargain
For one’s life

Pointless
To demand
Unthinkable
To bribe

Sometimes
A friend
Then again
A foe

The chase of danger
To defy death
A Russian roulette
Death has won

Death arrives
Without fanfare
Death claims
Without notice

A veil covers
Death is hidden
Mystery unsolved
The dead silent

To call it sleep
No coming back
Some seek out
To hug death

The long night
Waiting for dawn
The first rays
Is death waiting

No escape
It is destiny
We all will die
No one escape

To crossover
The body dies
Life after death
The soul lives on

Faith, Believe
The Lamb crucified
The tomb empty
The Resurrection
