An Unwanted Friend
It's back again;
That unwanted friend.
Beneath you hand, there flesh turns cold;
A realization of life your heart never told
It chokes your mangled heart
'Till it takes part,
To escort your loved one to the sky.
It leaves you alone asking,
They speak solemn words that don't mean much
Because you know never again will you feel their touch
As your eyes brim with salty tears
It taunts you viciously with your fears.
All your life it fiercely stalks you,
'Til your days become numbered and few
It's a fact of life no one bothered to tell,
As they walk past you and wish you well
Whether it be in form or family, friend, or pet,
It's cold and cruel
And it is Death.
