Death came knocking at my door
As he has so many times before
We have become friends, Death and I
And for the record, he’s an okay guy

He wasn’t here to take me away
Just to reaffirm why I must stay
He has a schedule he must keep
Seeds of time he must reap

I’ve challenged him on this a time or two
That is how our friendship grew
I’ve seen him call on several friends
He assures me of how the story ends

When he comes it’s just the start
A new beginning, a whole heart
Pain and anger are no more
Death is just an open door

Tonite he came when I was a mess
Thinking only of my unhappiness
Gave a grin, and said “Not yet…
Your quota for life has not been met”

He lets me see that in this life
Pain is just a small strife
But living is something we must do
We must somehow follow through

I choked back my selfish tears
Tried to swallow all my fears
Shook his hand and thanked him
For a reaper, he’s not so grim

Death came knocking at my door
His message showed me what life is for
To be enjoyed until we move ahead
To touch the world with tears we shed

To find in each day a meaning
So we won’t leave this world screaming
Savor each moment until the end
When you can welcome Death as a friend.
