When I Am Dead is a specially recorded spoken word track narrated by Jonathan Frid . Recorded in 1969, "When I Am Dead" was released as the seventh track on the album Original Music From Dark Shadows (Volume 1) in its LP and later compact disc printings. The music is composed by Robert Cobert with words from a poem written by Christina Rosetti.

LyricsEdit

When I am dead, my dearest,

Sing no sad songs for me.

Plant thou no roses at my head,

Nor shady cypress tree:

Be the green grass above me

With showers and dew drops wet:

And if thou wilt, remember:

And if thou wilt, forget.


I shall not see the shadows.

I shall not feel the rain;

I shall not hear the nightingale

Sing on, as if in pain:

And dreaming throughout the twilight

That doth not rise nor set,

Haply I may remember, and haply may forget.
