Life And Death A Friend To Have - Poem by Jacob Hill

Once I heard a story true
Of a friend that no one knew
Accept for me- and now to you
So listen well- this tail untold 
Watch as life, begins unfold 
In this story you will see-
It starts the night- of eternity...

Once upon a time before 
Death and hate- blood and gore
There was a man all alone
Overlooked by all- no empathy shown
For him this life was sad and sorrow
Dreading today, even more tomorrow-

But then one day a shadow did say
That all the pain could go away-
This been said- echoed with dread
Lost in his head- how, the man said-
The shady shadow did again reply
A horrible end in which you must die-

The lonely man stood stunned and scared 
The shady shadow just grimly stared-
Take your life and give it to me
Then you can live- happily
No more pain or sorrow-
Insane today- but not tomorrow
All is true and up to you
If you wish this- you know what to do-

Now the man- no longer in fear
Could not believe what he did hear
A tear not clear fell to the ground
When it hit- it made no sound-

His soul he gave with his life he took
His name he put in that little black book
He wrote in blood when he went to sign
And saw the face- the face that's mine-

Yes I said, to him- it's true
I have always been here for you-
I am death the collector of life
I am your friend- taking your strife
I am darkness- and also sin
I was here from the beginning-
And now at the end-
