Death be a
constant shadow to
follow you from day one
since the first day of your life
’ til the last when your time is done.
Then surely best live in the knowledge
that each day is a gift not a chore, when
you close your eyes this night be thankful
for one day more. Yes, If Death be a constant
shadow to follow you from day one, ‘twould be
better to live in full sunlight, standing tall,
with all dark shadows gone….
