When The Bell Tolls


Should I with love
Answer silent
And not reply
My loving tyrant;
Know that I
Am dead and gone;
In death, allied,
No will responds.

Should I with love
Answer silent,
Despite your needs,
My cosmic guidant,
Know that I
Am dead and gone,
My life confined
From then
Thereon.

Should I with love
Answer silent,
Despite your pleas,
My self-reliant,
Know that I
Am dead and gone,
My life refrain
From now
Hereon.
