Death the Shadow Behind Us


A shadow behind us sends chills down our spine
Always lurking at the corner of our eyes waiting for the right time
He knows our destiny
He watches us with close scrutiny
Blind we are to his presence
He is the bane of our existence
Serving God's judgement, will and fate
He will guides us to Hell or Heaven's Gate
Unemotional is Death
He cares not when we release our last breath
For he will perform his task
With his face unmasked
A shadow no more
Death will close the gates evermore
