It somes slowly
Creeping towards you like a lizard on the wall
With soft steps
That become louder as the feet progress .
It's an occurence far away ,
Your near and dear does it steal away .
When they're stolen with might you grieve
Your own demise you can't perceive .
But about that occasion you often ponder .
"What happens then ?",Do you often wonder .
"Where will it lead me to?"
"Is there life after death ?Is it true ?"
The prospect of death scares you too .
When in some form or the other it glares at you .
You know your moments are measured and few .
Neither do you want life snatched away from you .
But sometimes it is an unimaginable blow .
You don't expect it at all .
It doesn't bother to warn .
An accident's disguise does it often don .
Sometimes it just approaches you ,
Taking you in it's dark caress , which becomes a tight grip .
But fortunately it releases it's grip on you
And leaves you free , only to take you again .
Now death is far away .
You don't worry about it night and day .
But it just flits across like a thought
A new zeal to live has it brought .
Is death as frightening as it's made to be ?
Time will tell and we'll see.
