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
