Reaper, My Best Friend
A Lesson From The Reaper - Poem by Rosa Gonzalez
by Roslyn Gonzalez
I think the reaper is my bestfriend
He stalks day and night it never ends.
He tests my will he tests my might
Loving when I put up a fight.
I decided to provoke him which gave him delight.
And dared him to show me this eternal light
He laughed in my face
But looked surprised
Sternly reminding me I'm on his time.
He asked me not to blame him
sit back enjoy the ride
For he does not demise
only takes souls to the other side.
He promised not to fear him
this wasn't my last ride
To have a little faith
he'll be right by my side.
