Death has now come for me

As he did once before

He told me that he loved me

That I know for sure

But now he has changed somehow

Time has aged his face

His words are gentler now

Or maybe it's just a preface

He says he wants to protect me

He says evil is to come

If I go will I truly be safe

Be with him and not the sun

They say I cannot trust him

They say he is the end

Yet I know him better than them

And to me he is a friend

I know I shouldn't feel like this

As I know what is to come

I will savour every moment with him

Until he tells me to run

Death has now come for me

As he did once before

I promised I would go to him

And I promise this evermore
