She is cold, dark
and arrives without being invited.
Wrapping you in cold
taking you into darkness.
You may not want her
but you cannot refuse her.
Whatever your wishes
she will take what time has left behind.
It is hard to find consolation in her,
except in the rare occasions
when she takes us away from the pain of life.
she never arrives at the right time,
maybe because there is never a right time to die.
