Die me a river,
Cry me a land.
Sink through the sky,
Swim in the sand.

Hold on to moon beams
Dip your brush in the sea.
I'll give you my heart
If you don't set me free.

Hang Sun in the night,
Fly to the Hell.
Echo a whisper-
See the ring of a bell.

Turn from the sick,
Rejoice in their pain!
Hear the lost weep
Take pride in your shame.

Sinned by the sinners,
Called back from the Gone-
You stole me away,
I forgive you your wrong.

I love it! Not loved, love as in the present tense. It speaks, it shouts, it sings and I want to read it again!

That was beautiful. I love the emotion in it, the story you told. The ending line is especially great.
