LENORA LOVE WHITESIDE


When death comes 
One is never ready
It seems like he comes
and taps you from behind
 
He's always not so far behind
He comes as a thief in the night
and when he comes
He trots like a troll
behind the heel of your foot
 
And everywhere your feet shall tread
He's always not so far
No further away than a yard
or twelve measly inches
 
When death comes 
One is never ready
No one knows the day or the hour
when the last breath is snuffed away
like a birthday candle
blown out for the last time
 
When death comes 
It comes to rob you of your esteem
and there's no pride 
of a man laying in His grasps
 
When death comes it's a tragedy
The monument of the stones
are made with names 
of the days of the birth
in the end which rises 
under the sun
in the setting of the same
 
When death comes 
he's ruthless 
and comes as a bill collector 
of a bill price
that could never be paid or regained
So much time spent
not enough time to do
 
When death comes 
He don't even give you a chance 
to put on your shoes
 
When death comes
Naked you came into the world 
And naked you'll do the same
 
When death comes 
One is never ready
