i have seen
the Face of Death.
i have heard Death's sad scream.
i have felt Death's cold breath.

Death knocked upon my door.
Death softly said
"Forever more... Forever more...".
and down Death's dark path i was led.

in Death's dark face,
with hollow eyes,
a vision i can not erase,
i stood to confront my "why's".

Death rode upon a carriage black
drawn by seven black horses.
Death said " There's no going back.
Stand and know your remorses.'

'Stand and hear your lies.
See all your sins.
Say your goodbyes."
Death said " Now Eternity begins."

All things come and go.
All things Begin and all things End.
We all reap what we sow.
and so, in Death's Eternity eternity we spend.

i have seen the Face of Death.
i have felt Death's cold breath.
Time can not erase
the memory of Death's dark face.

I believe Mari grabbed the silver lining on this one. After facing death myself, I don't fear it any longer. Nothing equals the peace of death in beauty.

Yes and Steve I saw death's face so many times too but then I said to it. Hey Death don't knock on my door cause I don't live here anymore.

They say facing one's fears removes the fear... perhaps after facing down Death, he'll be the first to blink.
