The Life That I Have

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

    This poem was first 'read' to me by a girl, Poppy who became so very very special to me. It moved us so much it became 'our' poem. The background to it so moving, the sentiment so strong it's overpowering. The words have to be set to memory. ISL
