Casting dark shadows over me,

Death rises sinisterly,

With torn grey wings, pale skin, red eyes,

Casting darkness through the skies.

In my skin I feel a chill,

And suddenly my heart is still,

No trace of even a single beat,

That rhythm of life will never repeat.

Now I find it hard to breath,

And still this vision of death won't leave,

Gazing at me with fiery eyes,

Oblivious to my cries.

I'll never turn back from the decision I made,

My desire to live will never fade,

I place my future under the knife,

Trusting the surgeon with my life.

Maybe one day I will see,

Death turn away and leave me be
