    The Life that I have
    Is all that I have
    And the life that I have
    Is yours

    The love that I have
    Of the life that I have
    Is yours and yours and yours

    A sleep I shall have
    A rest I shall have
    Yet death will be but a pause
    For the peace of my years
    In the long green grass
    Will be yours and yours and yours

    Violette!

    I love this poem.

    So sad to think she was so cruelly murdered by the Nazis.

    If you watch the movie Carve Her Name With Pride it is the poem chosen by Virginia McKenna's character as the code she uses to contact base when she is undercover in France against the Nazi's

    The poem was actually written by Violette's husband for her.
    Sadly he died,
    Have watched Carve her Name with Pride many times and love it so would love a copy!
