My Date with Death

It's closing time,
I have left the lights on
and the door ajar;

I have set the table
and poured the best wine,
There's music
in the background
and fragrance in the air.

It's closing time and
I am all dressed up
and ready to swing.

O Death, come on in,
Bring your cheers and
bring your good times too;
There's a mood of
festivity and celebration.

Have the last meal on me,
Have the last drink on me,
Do the last dance with me
And oh, gather me in
your eternal embrace!
