If I Were To Kill Myself Tonight

If I were to kill myself tonight
Would you be angry or mad?
If I were to take my life tonight
What would you think?

Would you hate me for what i ve done?
Would you loath what I ve done?
Would you think of me as selfish?

When I ve killed myself tonight
Dont cry and dont be sad.
It was my choice to go
I know my time was short
I know I could of had years left.
But if I had stayed I would have gone mad.

When you find me dead and cold
Dont be anry and upset
I had to go now
Im sorry for my early departure.

When you visit my place of rest
Dont cry for me.
Dont waste time crying for me
Im not there
Im in your hart if you want me to be

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints, —I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life! —and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death great10+++++++++++ (though The same as HOW DO I LOVE THEE Poem, also by EBB)
The same as HOW DO I LOVE THEE Poem, also by EBB. This is a WOW-Poem, means, most beautiful, most touching and most read by readers, since it is such a terrific bestest poem, created by EBB and inspired of course by her husband. A supertalented lady, a woman of all periods and ages, a true immortal poem from the very start. EBB is a very learned woman and despite her constant pains, God has given her many talents, as we all know. A poem full of superlatives to be mentioned.
Her poetry is very romantic and her use of imagery and figurative language is wonderful.
This is my favourite from Sonnets from the Portuguese..One of the most beautiful love declaration ever written by a poet.
Beautiful True love, depth, passion Touching
