by dav.smith

Death sings a sweet lullaby in the folds of night
the words soft and comforting, peaceful to the soul
Death is no Ogre, just a guide for the transient spirits
he carries not a scythe, but a candle lit staff
words are not of horrid growls, but sweet songs
his touch, gentler than air, a reassuring hand
first contact on your journey to a new life

Death will wait patiently for you, he'll not rush your time
nor will he steal your life, he is a guide not a thief
preferring you don't come across, for he does get busy
when your time is due, he asks only you trust him
and when you hear his comforting song
know you are in good hands

I love the beginning and the line “death is an Ogre.” The first verse is so solid. My only nitpick is the last line because it seems close to a cliche. Overall, I love it.

    Vex, thanks for the comment. The last line was intended as a cliche. Cheers dAVE
