Death my old friend.

For nothing loved is ever lost.
And I will always love you dear brother

Death my old friend,
Today I laid my eyes on you again,
Winking at me you old fiend,
And filling my heart with excruciating pain.

Once again you came close to me,
Danced around the rim of my life,
Before taking a brother for to be,
Oh, but the day we will settle this spife.

Death my dear,
You fill people’s heart with fear,
Making the strongest shed a tear,
Oh how I wish to smite you with a spear.

We will soon meet I assume,
Before engulfing me with hell’s fumes,
You will dance to my tune,
Just as you take my life you goon.

Ah, but I thank you,
I await our meeting impatiently,
For I know you are my salvation,
A chance to begin my life anew.

Therefore I won’t think of you as gone away,
For your journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
This earth is only one.
