Death's Partner - Poem by Elysia Palmer

Black clouds roll in
Blotting out the setting sun
Cold engulfs the bodies present
Death sweeps in
She knows it is her time to shine
Sickle in hand she approaches the living
People around me start to fall
But I do not fear her
I welcome her
I will not back down
I stand strong
Stand happy
I see a smile cross her face
I will not die
I will live on to express my views
I will live on to broaden the horizon
I will open the minds of the people
That was my promise to Death
She let me live
I will not give up
I will not surrender
I will not fail
I will keep my promise
And Death shall never touch me

    I hear you. Living can be hard; at times, death can seem so near. For the sake of my spirit, and for the sake of others being able to read your poetry, I am glad you will not let Death touch you! Love the poetry (Report)Reply
