Death Stalks Me

Death stalks me
I sense his eyes upon me
I hear his footsteps follow
And I feel his cold breath upon my neck

Death stalks me
I will not try to run
I’ll walk this path I’ve always walked
A path now hardened by these weary years

Death stalks me
I will not try to hide
Though the road I travel
Is sheltered by the shadow of my sorrows
And clouded by the tears of my pain
I will not cower there

I will walk calmly and boldly forward
Even though I know
That death stalks me
And someday I will be his

    And there is NO HIDING from death...to me, death is life...my eternal afterlife...it's only human nature to want to cling to what is familiar. Enjoyed this personification of death...it sure looks like the Grim Reaper. lol. Love, Gwendolen
