Death do not be proud of yourself.
You walk amongst us unseen.
You are not noticed.
You take what means the most just to be noticed.
It’s not out of fear we ignore you.
It is for the love of life that we ignore your presence.
You take as you please.
But we don’t hate you for taking our loved ones
You are the giver of eternal life.
You give the best gifts at the wrong moments of time.
I walk past you looking down with respect.
And fear for once I love.
I walk with fear and you walk with pride.
There is no other like yourself.
But please take your time in handpicking those who I value.
