Oftentimes have I loved death

Oftentimes have I loved death,
Called death sweet names and spoken of
it in loving words both openly and
secretly.
Yet though I have not forgotten, nor
broken the vows of death,
I have learned to love life also.
For death and life have become equal to
me in beauty and in joy;
They have shared in the growth of my
yearning and desire,
And they have divided my love and
tenderness.

Kahlil Gibran
