When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:

When I am dead, my dearest,More...
What are heavy? Sea-sand and sorrow;More...
What are brief? Today and tomorrow;
What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth;
What are deep? The ocean and truth.Featured Shared Story
