I'll Die Loving You

When I wake in early morn,
Each time the day is new.
I thank the Lord that you were born,
As I'll die loving you.

As I sit alone and pray
And cling to love so true,
I'll hope to see you once today
As I'll die loving you.

When I see the stars at night,
I wonder if you do.
And hope they have us both in sight
As I'll die loving you.

When I take my final rest,
This day, if life is through;
I'll thank the Lord I lived so blessed
That I died loving you.

    stunning, touching words you have conveyed. it often seems when we are in love that one would die loving the other person and then so many yrs go by and another comes along and changes everything. loved the write, very powerful and filled with raw emotions. (Report) Reply

    awww..i LOVE this poem. its perfect and your wording is great, and explains the true devotion to loving another you truly care for. i love the line 'i died loving you.' just as much as this:
    Till death do us part

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
