    FOr my old friend :


    Don't fear me,

    I come in peace.

    Don't run from me,

    For I am your final destination.

    Don't shed tears before me

    For I have come to take you

    To a place that surpasses

    All that surrounds you now.

    Why is it when you dream

    I am considered your nightmare?

    Why is it

    That you try all things possible
    To delay my inevitability?

    Why do you fear my message?

    When I bring forth a summons from above.

    Don't cower before me,

    Rise with me.

    Don't bemoan my appearance,

    Rejoice in it.

    I have come to lift you to the next level

    Whisper my name with reverence

    My name is.......Death

    and this peace painted it just that way
