A Western Ballad

A Western Ballad

When I died, love, when I died
My heart was broken in your care;
I never suffered love so fair
As now I suffer and abide
When I died, love, when I died.

When I died, love, when I died
I wearied in an endless maze
That men have walked for centuries,
As endless as the gate was wide
When I died, love, when I died.

When I died, love, when I died
There was a war in the upper air:
All that happens, happens there;
There was an angel by my side
When I died, love, when I died.



Poem A Western Ballad - Allen Ginsberg
