Why do you have to make your presence known?
When I have known from the very day of my birth you would eventually find me
I could go to the ends of the earth and you would find me anywhere I go
I want to run and hide from you, but there is no where I could go you wouldn't find me.

All my life it's like I had to constantly look over my shoulder to make sure you weren't here
Always being afraid of when you will come for me
Feeling like you are watching me as a vulture watches their prey and the vulture not having one care
The feeling of fear you make me feel is very intense, see.

You have visited me several times, taking from me those I love
I try and not think of you but you are always in the back of my mind
But I cling to the hope of when you visit my soul will ascend to the land up above
No matter where I go, no matter where I hide, if you really want me, me you will always find.

I guess everyone possess a fear as we have to live in the shadow of this thing
Always trying to be careful and cautious, because your visit we all wish to delay
Everyone must take an unwanted trip with you, but most of us wish to this life to cling
In this life we all try and live right and never dare the supreme being, we all try to never disobey.

We do this so when you visit we all wish to see the radiant holy light
You will take my hand as I take my last breath
From then on I will submit myself to an unknown journey in a different sphere and different unknown plights
No doubt one day you will visit me, the old nemesis known as death.
