Shinigami, Take Me Away

Nothing but blackness do I see,
Tell me why this must be.
This thing just came over me,
Now darkness is all I see.

Someone take me away from here,
Away from everything that I fear.
Shinigami, take me away from this horrible place,
How I wish to see your face.

Shinigami, now, has come,
He was sent from up abouve.
Now that he's here, I see the light
And it is no longer night.

Now darkness I do not see.
I like the way that this should be.
He holds me safely in his arms
I feel secure, safe, and warm.
