by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.


In living life there’s no time for death
Though from birth death has followed
Silently riding in his shadowy carriage
Waiting to place me in ground hollowed.

No time for death, life must be lived
Run as I may but never out of sight
Whether I rest or I labor he lurks
I’ve always wonder especially at night.

Each day becomes shorter so it seems
I wake and retire another day
Oh death you must wait again
I won’t be ready to leave today.

As the years quickly pass so must I
Being neither a borrower or a lender
I came with nothing so I shall leave
Into the sweet night one day I’ll surrender.

Written by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.
