Death knell

Ominous clouds hangs,
I can feel thy presence
As death is around;
It encompasses me
Surely death shall
Befall me....
I fain hear thy footsteps
Sleathly approaching my door,
I smell the stench of death;
As it reaches me......
It spreads its icy hands,
As manacles sound me;
My brow is sweating
Eyes waver 'n' falter,
Oh!Is this the end?
I pray as I had never
Prayed afore,
Lord save my soul;
And carry me to eternity
Peace thereafter......
