The Life I Loved
(Sympathy Poems)

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 have run and leaped with the rain
I have taken the wind to my breast ..
My cheek like a drowsy child to
the face of the earth I have pressed.

Because I have loved life
I shall have no sorrow to die ..

I have kissed young Love on the lips
I have heard his song to the end ..
I have struck my hand like a seal
in the loyal hand of a friend.

I have known the peace of heave
the comfort of work done well ..
I have longed for death in the
darkness and risen alive out of hell.

Because I have loved life,
I shall have no sorrow to die ..

I give a share of my soul to the
world where my course is run ..
I know that another shall finish
the task I must leave undone.

I know that no flower, nor flint
was in vain, on the path I trod .l.
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.
