When I Die


When I Die

When the bell
tolls for me
This romantic
Only requests
one thing
When I die
Let it be for love

      1. Well, I’m not sure we get to choose! But yeah, I used to think I’d want to live as long as possible, but now I feel like health would be more important. I know I’m so much more active than my parents were at this age, so that’s gotta help, right?

        1. Wouldn’t that be cool if we could? I agree with you. used to think I wanted to live until 100. Everything depends on “the quality of life.” Yeah I compare myself to my parents and I am doing so much better than them at my age.

    1. That kind of happened to me. It wasn’t funny then…
      And the doctors in the er room were all whispering about me, as sell as the nurses. I was embarrassed to say the least.
      I was also the ambulance driver because they had a tendency to get lost… I was 10 minutes away and hitting 60.
      He has a collapsed vein and they had to put a stent in.


          1. About packing at 2:00 a.m.? Absolutely. I’m a light packer. I’m staying with my sister, and she will have everything I need. I’m only taking a carry on. What you don’t realize, is that I don’t need a pair of shoes to match every outfit. I don’t need jewelry to match every outfit. I am very plain and simple, yet I dress with class. So therefore, I don’t need much to take.

  1. This is either the most romantic concept written or a decision a non consensual spouse makes in response to an act of infidelity. Interesting how each uses the term passion. The first is an act of passion; the second, a crime of passion! πŸ˜€

          1. Yes seriously. It would be a blessing to me.
            If you knew how I have to live, you might think different.
            People always say “oh you can change things” or you can do this or that….no. I cannot.
            #1 I have absolutely no money. He does. After 25 yrs.
            #2 I have a service dog that weights 83 pounds that I cannot dump. And I wont. HE is why I still live. And not many landlords will accept him. They accept tiny dogs.
            So, no options. I look but do not find. I’m going to give up looking. It gets old. Everyday. Nothing changes. Ever.
            No one cares anyway. And certainly not my “husband”

  2. I enjoyed your poem. πŸ™‚ Did you take that pretty photo, Andrew?
    I used to like the song “I did it all for Love,” in Chorus Line. Amen to love *plus old age with memory in tact * so I remember all the love! ❀ πŸ™‚
