I age,
I created tears,
I kill youth,
And disrupt time,
I've pulled mothers from children,
I've made you cry,
I've stopped hearts,
And eaten souls,
I've made people still and cold,
Eyes empty,
Lips never moving,
Last words heard,
Last words dealt,
I'm the one all fear,
Yet cannot live without me,
I make you tremble and weep,
Yet as soon as I've struck,
I am gone,
Leaving only coldness and heartache,
The memory of a loved one,
I am death.
