You dont fear a friend
I'm not afraid to die,
If death stared me in the eye,
I'd simply smile I won't cry,
I'll whisper hello again,
My dear friend, may I ask, how I've come to die.
To lie down in front of all your power and glory,
I feel your icy breath touch my soul and body,
The emptiness is eerie as I take your hand,
Shivering through each and every gland,
It ripples through my still soft warm skin,
Has my short life already lived, has it been?
My dear friend is that why you are here?
Is this why you draw me closer my dear?
I suppose it's time to follow you death,
And walk through the shadow of death,
Will the suffering be in vein will the pain end?
Friend do you hear my sins am I condemned
This sickly silence is killing me all over again,
Whisper in my ear or let your sweet voice sing,
Death, end this bitter silence and say something,
Is my mortal mind unclean, or appear unclear?
Listen to my voice, follow it there is no despair to hear,
Come close my dear death You'll find no fear here,
I'll stand toe to toe to look you straight in the eye,
If you snatch my last breath, I’ll lay down to die on the cold hard ground to complete the cycle and my body will ramify,
Now take my souls holy hand as you promised, now our friendship will surely flourish,
As we walk through the shadow of death hand in hand finally,
May god forgive my sins, may those who love me remember me kindly,
And let them not worry for I'm with a dear friend over here,
This separation is only temporary a simple farewell just for now,
Don’t try to follow me you'll get turned right back around,
As its not time for you to meet death and become his best friend,
Deaths to busy right now he has a new friend to whom he must attend.
