“The Life That I Have”

Here is a beautiful poem written during WWII.  There is a link at the bottom for information about the author.  

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause

For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours
