"Death" Comes for Me

When I was a child
"Death" came as a surprise
Now....I expect it
For myself
And for others

As a child
I heard the word
"Death"
It came
For people
And for animals
They never came back

As a young adult
"Death" was a surprise
Unacceptable
Cause for great sorrow

Now I expect "Death"
Know its' kindness
Know its' necessity
Know its' fairness
Know its' promise

I wait for its' gentle knock
On my door
"Death" comes
For me
