Oh death, why do I fear thee so?
Is it the loneliness that thou wilst bring?

Or is it pain and sadness, fear and sorrow?
Or coldness, darkness that then will begin?

Or is it just the fear of the unknown,
That from a tiny seed within my heart has grown? 

Dear God, please help me conquer all my fears,
That grow and multiply throughout the years!
