My Love Dies with me When I Die


My loves dies with me when I die;
Her image fades as does my eye;
I, her painter, her life recorder,
Who chronicled her sins in order;
She dies with me with my last breath,
Her mortal memory laid to rest.

I burn my books of poetry
That gave her name eternity;
Thus in life, as she deprived,
In my death, she is denied

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
