Though I Chose Death Instead of Pointless Pain
|Though I chose death instead of pointless pain,|
Please forgive the manner of my leaving.
My love and need for all of you remain.
I could not long such suffering sustain,
I hope that choice will not my memory stain,
For only in you do I live again,
I put to you the plea of the self-slain:
That all that I have been not be in vain,
