Death's Kiss

Rating: 5.0
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

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I am trying to unlock this taboo subject. Some people suffer so much before they die but at the point of death many say that a calm comes over their loved one. So I am wondering if Death could speak to us what would he say.

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.

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.

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.

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! !
