Do you fear the reaper?
Doom, death, the graveyard keeper?
The cold or dark of shadows hence?
Mayhaps the fear of not knowing whence?

Do you fear the night?
The unkind robber of sight?
Does it not flee from the tiniest light?
So why fear that which so easily takes flight?

Do you fear the final fold?
Is it fear for you or those left behind?
A fear for things not yet told?
Fear of slipping from others mind?

Consider that time yet still does tick,
so even if now none you hold dear,
they may await you in future far and near.
A way still for hope before flame gives final flick.

Now answer and answer true,
this final question life will ask of you:
Dear future sleeper,
Do you fear the reaper?
