I WANT TO DIE WHILE YOU LOVE ME, a poem by Georgia Johnson










FOTOGRAFÍA: Monasterio de Piedra, 233
Blanca Langa




  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,
And bear to that still bed,
Your kisses turbulent, unspent,
To warm me when I´m dead.

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 never, never see
The glory of this perfect day
Grow dim or cease to be.
