Poems about death - 'Though I Chose Death

'Though I Chose Death - Poem by Jessica Bunnell

'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,
nor would it have kept you long from grieving.
'Though I chose death instead of pointless pain,

I hope this choice will not my mem'ry stain,
nor lead you to be wroth at my deceiving.
My love and need for all of you remain.

For only in you do I live again,
stitched into the fabric of your being.
'Though I chose death instead of pointless pain,

I put to you the plea of the self-slain:
To comprehend a hard past receiving.
My love and need for all of you remain.

That all that I have been not be in vain,
but blend into all of your believing.
'Though I chose death instead of pointless pain,
my love and need for all of you remain.
