The Death Angel

Here of late the death angel passed this way
He didn't stop here to call one of us home
The death angel visited far away
'Twas this man from home who inspired this poem

Also a lady about a mile away(as the crow flies)
Died within hours of his life's ending
The man lived a long life had many birthdays
A lady who passed pulled family's heartstrings

She was younger with her death unexpected.
Lying down, never thought this would be last night.
Death angel came and she was appointed
Through the great darkness she saw the bright light

We were given a while longer to live
God called_ age not an anticipative 

Finis'...

    Dear Sara - Yes - it is a more appropriate ending. "age not an an anticipative" "she was appointed" Thank you for the new ending. It has personal meaning for me. xxx's ooo's Kathy

    Wow... You have said it all... Sometimes, the way I see it, we are always accompanied by the Angel of death and the day it embraces us is the day we go to the after Life. I am glad I read this
