Take Anything

Take anything, but my soul
Let thy heart cast thy delicate glow
When the earthly body doth die
Let my heart –to the heavens-fly

Take anything, but my mind
Intricacies make miracles of words divine
When the earthly body doth die
Allow my mind-to the page-cry


Take anything, but my eyes

Allow the mortal body with beauty to sigh

When the earthly body doth die

The beauty fades- and with tears- know why

Take anything, but my speech
For centuries words make men bleed
When the earthly body doth die
Take my words- and nobly try

Take anything, but my life
Let thy light glow brilliant
And when the earthly body doth die
Let my heart- to the heavens- fly

It was a very nice one... Reminded me of this poem called Tithonus by Lord Alfred Tennyson (I think that's his name)... I read this poem and my mind's thinking of ancient Greece and Rome... good work :).. Could you check out my work please? You can comment on anything you want...
