After Virginia died Poe's life-long struggle with depression and alcoholism worsened and died on October 7, 1849 of yet unknown causes.
...
Poe's biological mother, stepmother and wife Virginia died of tuberculosis. This became inspiration for many of his poems.
The bowers whereat, in dreams, I see
The wantonest singing birds
Are lips- and all thy melody
Of lip-begotten words
Thine eyes, in Heaven of heart enshrined
Then desolately fall,
O God! On my funeral mind
Like starlight on a pall
Thy heart-thy heart! I wake and sigh,
And sleep to dream till day
Of the truth that gold can never buy-
Of the baubles that it may
To--
The bowers whereat, in dreams, I see
The wantonest singing birds,
Are lips- and all thy melody
Of lip-begotten words-

Thine eyes, in heaven of heart enshrined
Then desolately fall,
O God! on my funeral mind
Like starlight on a pall-

Thy heart- thy heart- I wake and sigh,
And sleep to dream till day
Of the truth that gold can never buy-
Of the baubles that it may.
