Someone awaiting death with open arms.

Any moment now my life will end

Any moment now an angel G-d will send

I stand and wait with open arms

For death to come but not to harm


The little I have left, my anger my guilt

My legacy my life that I have built

To re-take a borrowed existence

That compare to no time and distance


Here he comes dressed in black, ready for fight

A gleaming knife catching the early mornings light

This is it, all that I have been living for

I fall to my knees and on to the floor

This is really strong and meaningful. "For death to come but not to harm" That's a really interesting line; death is generally associated with some sort of pain, whether it's the person who has passed away or others who will grieve. It was well written and flows well; the rhyming was good, too. I like it :)
