Death is the fear of something coming to an end - the 'you' as you experience yourself.

Only someone not living asks about death.  Death is the fear of some thing coming to an end.  But there is no death - what dies?  The continuity of your knowledge, your experience of who and what you think you are dies and you can't experience that continuity coming to an end.
