Death Is Here

                  Death is here, smiling
                     I wished for death
               like that of a loved one
                       -longed for.
                    I sang her praises
         till my voice ended up croaky
          until sounds from it was lost.
                     When she arrived,
              I was afraid to embrace her.
                    I became dejected.
                  She’s lost her beauty &
                       my feisty appeal.
                        Life presents me
                      with his treasures;
                I can’t wastefully exhaust.
                    Death is here- smiling
                       I can not reject her.
