A Song Of Living Comments

Rating: 5.0

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.

'I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod. As one looks on a face through a window, through life I have looked on God, Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.' Wise words. I wish all of us can be so much at peace with our lives when we die. Beautiful and haunting at the same time, the poem gives us a sense of tender ruminations about the meaning of our lives and how we have been spending it; and at the same time gives us hope, that maybe one day we can die with the same dignity that the speaker of the poem did.
