Remember, remember…
Memento Mori…
Nothing lasts forever…
Remember your mortality…

 

I am the red raven.
Red is my lustre…
…and Black is my plumage…
My duty is to deliver your soul…
To carry you to the afterlife…

 

Perched on the tree of your life…
I am there sitting…
I am there watching…
I am there waiting…
For your life’s inevitable demise…

 

In your final moments, your darkest hour…
While your life passes before your eyes…
While death creeps slowly through your veins to devour…
while you’re struggling, fighting for your the last gasps of air to breath…
At the time of your mortal life’s end…

 

I will be there perched on your life’s tree…
I will be there sitting…
I will be there watching…
I will be there waiting…

 

Remember, remember…
Memento Mori…
Nothing lasts forever…
Remember your mortality…

 

I will be there in your last moments…
In that moment, I will race to you quickly…
With my talons, I will snag your soul…
…Swiftly, separating your soul from your mortal body…

 

In the blink of an eye…
Your long torment…
Your ardent struggle…
Will end instantly…

 

The next time you wake…
Will be a new a new life, a new beginning…
Immortal and unending…

 

In your final hour till your last moment…
When I come forth do not be in lament…
Be at peace when you catch a glimpse of me landing…
On a tree watching you while perching…
For I have come to end your life’s painful tormenting…
To attend to your pain, your long and arduous suffering…
