dying day, to one's

For the rest of one’s life. The English poet George Sandys used the expression as long ago as 1599: “To have a sight of her sometime before their dying-dayes.” The cliché usually appears in a somewhat melodramatic or hyperbolic context, such as “I’ll never forget this garden, not to my dying day.”
