The Grim Reaper Cometh

As All Hallows’ Eve approacheth my thoughts turneth to darkest dread,

Whilst in old age I harboureth a deep fear of seeing this one’s grim head;

Me thinks the Grim Reaper cometh this time with his scythe in hand,

Which striketh maximum fear in me and maketh him feel quite so grand.

Death and darkness doth pervade this spirit’s intent from that great beyond,

And bringeth one a chilling fear if one’s destiny be unending Hellspawn;

All Hallows’ Eve is the image I conjureth of my imminent departure,

But I hopeth for divine intervention and protection during this departure.

For I shan’t want to feel the fear and malediction of the Grim Reaper’s gaze,

As he eerily walketh in the deep mist to bringeth my soul into that darkest haze;

I prayeth then Oh Lord God, haveth an Angel escort me on my final trip beyond,

And spareth me the Grim Reaper’s terrifying visit and his image of Hellspawn.

I asketh thy divine power and all goodness in protecting my eternal spirit and soul,

And delivereth them to Heaven on All Hollows’ Eve most sound and quite whole!

Amen!  Amen!  Amen!
