Angel of Death

(Bird of Prey Snowy Owl and The Rat- Quarry)

Come my little one, come into my embrace
I have come to fetch you n give you solace
Our appointment was made when you were born
I have come to keep my promise, made that morn

There is no time to dither and run helter skelter
This will be the fate of all, so what does it matter

The kind snowy owl has come for you at my bidding
You will be his savior rat by sacrifice, sans any chiding

There is no need to look for food now,  here and there
Your time has come finally my little pal, so be aware

Life and death follow each other cyclically n inexorably
I am the angel of death and my job is taxing emotionally

So my darling little one do not tire yourself running around
The snowy owl is all ready to pounce without making a sound

Let your tired self rest in my arms blissfully with grace
Your job is done in this world and it is time to retrace

Come my little one, come into my embrace
I have come to fetch you and give you solace

Our appointment was made when you were born
I have come to keep my promise, made that morn

I am the angel of death, angel of life and myself are twins
And the world knows that inevitably it is I who always wins

Come my little one, come into my embrace
I have come to fetch you and give you solace

Death is inevitable, but Life – that’s the tricky bit where things happen.

Life is just standing in line for death.

For death begins with life’s first breath And life begins at touch of death

Fame comes only when deserved, and then is as inevitable as destiny,
for it is destiny.
