Death
 
Why, do you show your face?
Is it because it is cold outside
Or, because the leaves have fallen
Because, the snow is blanketing
The ground with white crystals?
Why?
 
You visit often, just recently
Taking a life, my father
Then, you took my mother.
Why just 36 days apart
Did you show your face?
Why?
 
Now, you come back, and
Knock at the door, once more
Taunting, gripping, pulling
Wanting to take another life
Does age matter?
Why?
 
He’s just a simple man
A man with many years
Yet, he has little strength
Yes, he’s tired, yes he’s weak
Let him go on, and
Let him live!

Hi Deborah, Sometimes the grim reaper shows up unexpected. There is nothing we really can do but pray. I am very sorry for the loss of your Father, and Mother. All we can do is pray for them and for you too. And I will.

GOD BLESS
Tony
