The Grim Reaper - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Dark skies are falling
the reaper is calling
he sees the tears that are forming

He hears your cries from afar
he'll be by your side before morning
he wants to comfort you
before people start to mourn you
then he'll take your soul
and leave the shell of you

He's just like you and me
he's got a job to do
so live your life
before he takes it from you
