Before The Death Takes Me


I'll give my heart..
To a child who lacked laugh and joy.
Lungs..
To a lover who breathes me air
And exhales me as a butterfly in the wind,
My eyes..
To a painter turns me to a feather,
My hands..
To a farmer plants me as a tree
Green all seasons,
My lips..
To a poet sipped me as a coffee
And write me as a limitless poem,
My feet..
To a footsteps does not bored from the road.
And my voice..
To a songs lives forever in the echo
;
Before the death takes me
I'll vowed me to the life.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
