By Bud Lemire

I looked at Death, and laughed in her face
And found myself in some other place
I didn't know just where I could be
But then again, I didn't think it'd happen to me
Then she appeared, and I looked around
I was suspended far off the ground
I thought to myself, What is this?
Then she came real close, and gave me a kiss
The kiss of Death, ain't what it seems
It sure beats the one found in dreams
A surge of energy, was what I felt
I wonderd what kind of kiss she dealt
Then she took me close, in her embrace
And there with Death, I was face to face
I knew that Death, was nothing to fear
As she held me tight, and I held her near
As she walked with me, to the other side
She showed me all, she had nothing to hide
It was then, right there, that I really knew
The link between Life and Death, that'll embrace you
With Death so close, I wanted so much more
But she felt it was time, to close the door
I had a taste of Death, and she tasted fine
At the place between worlds, deep within my mind
