Do they know it ? Do they?
Sense death at the door
That this life and world will be no more?
Do they start thinking differently about their friends
Something inside knowing it’s the end
Start to get their affairs in order
Before they reach the final border.
Does the wind blow differently?
Does the sun shine brighter?
Perhaps the earth knows
It will be one soul lighter.
Are there symptoms of death
Do they whisper in your ear
Telling you the end is near?
I have to ask. I have no choice.
I think I’ve heard the reaper’s voice.
