Since I Have Felt the Sense of Death
By Helen Hoyt
 
From “Poems of Life and Death”

SINCE I have felt the sense of death,
  Since I have borne its dread, its fear—
  Oh, how my life has grown more dear
Since I have felt the sense of death!
  Sorrows are good, and cares are small,        5
  Since I have known the loss of all.
 
Since I have felt the sense of death,
  And death forever at my side—
  Oh, how the world has opened wide
Since I have felt the sense of death!        10
  My hours are jewels that I spend,
  For I have seen the hours end.
 
Since I have felt the sense of death,
  Since I have looked on that black night—
  My inmost brain is fierce with light        15
Since I have felt the sense of death.
  O dark, that made my eyes to see!
  O death, that gave my life to me!
