And Death

Should it be given dominion on the Earth?
Has death not taken freely what it wants
All people and animals come into it grasp.
Light fades from their eyes as death takes them
Letting them sleep in its bosom; carried far away.
Hither death comes near to take thee
Away to your final resting place
Voiceless death comes closes your eyes;
Evermore you will rest in its bosom.
Nameless death comes to all
Over years it comes to claim our souls
Does it still have dominion now?
Oh, souls taken freely death gathers
Many under its gathering wings
It comes creeping in silently
No, death should not have dominion
It is too silent; too stealthy in it tasks
Of taking life away from one who has love me
No, death should not have dominion on the Earth.
