Poem

In Memoriam
Tom Cook

Death and the Young Man by David Bergman


"Death, you needn't be afraid,
thin and fevered though I am.
I, who have waited so long
to see you, will not struggle
now that you've arrived. Just be
gentle. This is my first time."

"Yes, I was frightened. Though I
have taken many ravaged
by Time and Cruelty, yet
not until now, one like you
so beautiful and ready.
Let me hold you in my arms."[1]
