Death, Take Me with You

Death,

Wipe your blade,

Clean of my blood,

Before you enter the garden,

Rose petals,

Aligned to my lover's heart,

Blown away, by your dry breath,

Melancholy melodies,

You're whistling your tune,

Take me with him,

Love has gouged my eyes,

To the happiness of life,

Your dark cloak,

A sweet reward,

Lucky are those,

Heaven sent,

Damned are the rest,

To hell on earth,

For I could live,

Five centuries over,

And still not find,

A soul like his,

So take me with you,

Dearest Death,

Towards eternal jubilation
