I am death and I welcome you with a kiss
And gently hold your hand as you drift off into bliss.
Do not fear me as I welcome one and all
At the end of all your days, at the end of your summer ball.
I am death, I am everywhere round about
I welcome you in silence not even with a shout.
I have been waiting for you all your life long
To meet you and greet you with my song.
I am death; I am not to be feared with dread
I know when to call you, when everything has been said.
Though I may take you by surprise in an unexpected way,
I will take your hand gently in the twilight of your day.
unavoidable beauty once acquired keep within never tell to anybody Mr David topic of choice is mine too beautiful
Like it, it's something a lot of people don't like to talk about. My only worry is, will it take me up or will it take me down. A great poem.
a very nice poem penned very beautifully David!
I like how death is both fearful and a friend at the end, and how you seem to have captured that idea in this one.
Death is merely the recycler of life... A very nice poem, I really like it...
Excellent David, I am an ex Funeral director and have alot of understand with death and dying. Really beautiful and one to save.
None of us know what death is like - for some it seems peaceful, with a kiss, but for others there is much suffering. Well written poem David, flows beautifully with good rhyming.

Death comes as an unexpected visitor! (A friend or a fiend, we do not know! Everything depends on how we look upon it) A poem stirring up deep reflections in the mind! !
