Death


'O' what a feeling death
all have to walk this path,
Everyone knows he is to die
none but God can say why.

A mention is in heaven
the home of all good men and women,
No one knows when he is to die
and the hardest thing is to say goodbye.

Time of death cant be delayed
be it a king, a queen or a maid,
Death comes to every one,
Taking live of every one,
Death, death, o what a feeling

    You have addressed the Death as if you have experienced it: p..........A good description of state of death.Its indeed very hard to say goodbye but it is reality and everyone has to face it though unwanted and unwilling. (Report) Reply

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
