Death Be But A Lullaby

Death be but a lullaby
which sings the soul to sleep,
calming is thy tender melody
so no more we may weep

Death be but a lullaby
to soothe thy weary head,
once overcome by life's travails
now freely dances with the dead

Death be but a lullaby
how sweetly the reaper sings,
his harmony of heaven uplifts
as if carried upon white wings

Death be but a lullaby
meant to follow right along,
walk behind his hooded robe
this Pied Piper and his song

Death be but a lullaby
to listen to without fear,
when the reaper's tolling bell
comes a'ringing in thy ear.

    I love the way you deal with death, Kelly; I am sure that from now on I'll look at it with different eyes:) The repeated line is very effective. ~ All the best // paul

    Hello Kelly, I love the fluidity and your rhyming of this poem. I couldn't have described death as a lullaby any better than you did. It is also wonderful to say hi to my friend again......luv.... Roger

    “Death be but a lullaby which sings the soul to sleep” great opening, Kelly, I enjoyed your dark little song. Nicely penned my friend. Hugs, John

    This was really cool. I love the feel of this and the repeating lines made it feel song-like. As if a lullaby. Really nicely done Kelly
