Because I Cannot Stop For Death

( a Quatern )
 
Because I cannot stop for Death,
The Host of passage will oblige.
And thus shall quiet take my breath,
In disbelief must I abide.
 
Will I be running for a bus,
Because I cannot stop for Death.
Is there no other way for us,
To keep me from eternal rest?
 
I donít believe in being blessed,
To have another chance at life.
Because I cannot stop for Death,
That waits to cut me like a knife.
 
The test Iím given will I fail,
I know I havenít much time left.
If you could only post my bail,
Because I cannot stop for Death.
