by William Ernest Henley (1849 - 1903)

Dearest, when I am dead
Language: English 
"Dearest, when I am dead,
   Make one last song for me:
Sing what I would have said --
   Righting life's wrong for me.

"Tell them how, early and late,
   Glad ran the days with me,
Seeing how goodly and great,
   Love, were your ways with me."
