Could we say go bhfaighe mé bás as grá with a potential meaning of 'let me die out of love'? Or is that impossible?

This is not a suggested alternative, but merely a related musing

- den ghrá- of/from love
- ar son an ghrá - for (the sake of) love

Google Translator suggests "lig dom bás" I would add "... a fháil" or rather: lig dom fáil bháis
