Grim figure beside
My Death Bed
I don't fear you, come closer
Why fear the inevitable?
Why fear the fate of every living thing?
I knew my time
Was coming to a close
At least I have someone to keep
"One door closes
You’re lonely as well I see
All I’ve loved is gone
I know how you feel
That look in your eyes
Those empty sockets can still give off
Sadness and loneliness
Even Death needs a drinking buddy
You’ve silently been following me
On these last few miles, right?
I’ve must’ve been a terrible companion
I haven’t contributed to the conversation at all
If I was aware, I would've told you a joke at least
To help pass the time
I want to ask what lies beyond but I fear that will ruin the surprise.
Thank you, Death.
