If I were to die today,
Would you, darling, be okay?
The love I feel
For you is real
And does not need a breath to stay.
If the heavens were to shake,
The earth beneath my feet to quake,
You mustn't fear
For me, my dear;
The life I led was for your sake.
Would you, sweetheart, kiss me so,
The way that you and I would know?
Your lips on mine,
My breath is thine;
Bid me peace after I go.
You needn't fear to please my love,
For yours is mine in heaven above.
My love will live,
Your life, my gift.
The thought of you will be enough.
