    Default Since the day you left, i was dieing.

    two lovers were far from each other. now they are together and the boy is talling the girl:

    "since the day you left, every day i was dieing and reviving a thousand times."

    Was her sentence right?

    No, the sentence is not right.

    Since the day you left, I have died and come back to life (or "I have died and been revived") a thousand times.

    Please remember to start every sentence with a capital letter.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
