If You Die Before Me

If you die before me
I would jump down into your grave
And hug you so innocently
That angels will become jealous.

I shall kiss you
And press your body against me.
I shall shiver in your presence
I shall sweat and dance with you
In the nether world.

We shall dance soft and then wild.
We shall dance together.
As one body.
Dance so long and fine like a poem
Until the Lords of the dark world faint.

Then you will be free and fly away
From me into the world of the heavens
Where angels shall kiss your sacred body
Then you need no space to live and breathe.

Into that world of purity you will go
And I will be here on earth
Dreaming of your joys with
The Heavenly spirits.

Shall I wait
Shall I wait at dusk and dawn
with such desire and passion
To reach you oneday
in your world of happiness.

    What a brilliant poem. I championed this philosophy some time ago. But I now think its not for the go. When you cannot meet the eye of infinite, better to see her from the womb of her finite. If she dies before me, I can be reborn, as a seed in her soul to go where no man has ever gone. I loved your poem. (Report) Reply

    …..and if

    and if in truth our love’s to be eternal
    until the sun and moon refuse to shine,
    then happiness is ours to own forever
    withstanding all the ravages of time.

    and if we reach the pearly gates of heaven
    and the angels ask me if, perhaps, you’ve sinned,
    I’ll tell them we were sinners both together
    and without you I’d rather not go in.

    kind of on the same theme....your poem and mine....Ruthie (Report) Reply
