May I Go?

May I go now?

Do you think the time is right?

May I say good-bye to pain filled days

and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,

an example tried to be.

So can I take that step beyond

and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,

I fought with all my might.

But something seems to draw me now

to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.

It's difficult to stay.

But I will try as best I can

to live just one more day.

To give you time to care for me

and share your love and fears.

I know you're sad and afraid,

because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,

and hope you'll always know

that my spirit will be close to you

wherever you may go.

Thank you so for loving me.

You know I love you, too.

That's why it's hard to say goodbye

        and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time

and let me hear you say,

because you care so much for me,

you'll let me go today.
