I WANT TO DIE WHILE YOU LOVE ME

I want to die while you love me,

while yet you hold me fair,

while laughter lies upon my lips

and lights are in my hair.

 

I want to die while you love me,

I could not bear to see,

The glory of this perfect day,

Grow dim-or cease to be.

 

I want to die while you love me,

Oh! who would care to live?

Till love has nothing more to ask,

And nothing more to give.

 

I want to die while you love me,

And bear to that still bed ,

Your kisses turbulent,unspent,

To warn me when i’m dead.
