Dancing With Death
Dance with me said death Come dance in the dark We are both all alone And the darkness so stark Embrace me said death Wrap your warm arms around my bones We are both without hope Both of us so alone Take my hand said death Follow me down to the crypt And Lay there beside me Where both of us can rest Stay with me said death Here beyond the light of day Let your bones join my own In silence and decay
I put a personal spin on this one by ending Richard's poem with a more
triumphant outlook for the souls of the dearly departed.
