A Song Of Living
(Inspiring 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 cheeks 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 heaven
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 gave a share of my soul to the world
when and where my course is run ..
I know that another shall finish the task
I surely must leave undone.

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 ..
