Death, you that lurk in the shadowy night
You come as fast as you go like the wind
cold and illusive you fill me with fright
The sunlight goes dim for the souls that you lend

You feed on the living insatiably
When the time comes and our hearts start to rust
The sting of your touch comes tenaciously
In the ambiguous dark we turn to dust

And when my eyes were seeking survival
You suffocate me with cruel unseen force
Our lives await by your untimely arrival
now let nature take its endless
course.
