Death can seize you during the day.
Death can grab you at work or play.
Death can snatch you, too, at night.
Death can steal you away without a fight.
Death can appear if you’re young or old.
Death can emerge in the heat or cold.
Death knows when your time is near.
Death knows it is your biggest fear.
Death knows it will win in the end.
Death knows to it’s will you’ll bend.
Death knows all in life it will hound.
Death knows it will always be around.
