My Death


my heart is painted too
deeply for mirth and sorrow
as the burden press
and the care distresses
the way grow weary and long
as the daylight fade into
deep nightshade
when for my deep grief
i find no peace
tho my tear flow
all the night long
my sad heart act
till its near break
when my way is dark
with nameless and fear
when i have tried and failed
to resist some temptation strong
i have said goodbye
to this dearest earth

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
