Emily Dickinson - So give me back to Death --

So give me back to Death --
The Death I never feared
Except that it deprived of thee --
And now, by Life deprived,
In my own Grave I breathe
And estimate its size --
Its size is all that Hell can guess --
And all that Heaven was --

It's beautiful. Yes, it has a dark undertone, but it's beautiful none the less.
