Because Of Me


Don't die because of me
I don't want to hurt anybody
this is just how I grieve
so don't die because of me.

I'm like the girl who went up into the hills
because her father promised to have her killed
but I brought a book of poems with me
so people would know how I grieved.

So don't die because of me
a graveyard is just a cemetery
we've come this far
so don't give up because of me.

If I die, I die,
'what's meant to be will be'
just don't give up on yourself
because they gave up on me.

You know the girl did come back
she came back to her father
and he had made a promise,
so he had to sacrifice her.

She mourned because she never found love
but she never gave up
so don't give up because of me.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
