Death Be Not Proud

Sonnet X, also known by its opening words as "Death Be Not Proud", is a fourteen-line poem, or sonnet, by English poet John Donne (1572–1631), one of the leading figures in the metaphysical poets group of seventeenth-century English literature. Written between February and August 1609, it was first published posthumously in 1633. It is included as one of the nineteen sonnets that comprise Donne's Holy Sonnets or Divine Meditations, among his best-known works. Most editions number the poem as the tenth in the sonnet sequence, which follows the order of poems in the Westmoreland Manuscript (circa 1620), the most complete arrangement of the cycle, discovered in the late nineteenth century.

I see them walking down the road
Hand in hand their eyes like gold
Shining with the love I see within

I see the way you look at her
The way you laugh at what she says
It makes me smile and yet I still feel it
That tiny pinprick in my soul

It's not that I want to take you from her
It's not that you're not quite the catch
But every now and then I start thinking when is it my turn to feel the warmth

With every day that passes by
Days turn to months and turn to years
I try to stay happy and light
Surrounded by the ones I love

Still every now and then again
My heart starts to beat and long
For something more than I know when we
Finally meet and live together forever

Is it as they say, or is it all just a dream
A dream that may never come true
Sometimes I think I'm better off on my own

But every now and then I start thinking when is it my turn
When is it my turn to feel what you do when you are loved?
When is it my turn to never feel alone again
When will it be my turn to feel the warmth?

When is it my turn -to feel the warmth of somebody's arms
When is it my turn -to feel the spark of love again
When is it my turn- to hold on and know she won't let go
When is it my turn- will the time never be mine?
