Walking With Death

I walk through shadows
with Death by my side,
his hand on my shoulder
his eyes wise.
We walk as old friends
with stores to tell,
for this is not the first time
we’ve walked this trail.
My time has not come
to leave this realm,
it is for comfort he comes
to reassure another is well.
My life long dance
will end soon enough,
so I will try to live each moment
to the fullest,
for before I know it
my hand he will take
and lead me towards
the next chapter my journey will make.
