May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye 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 living 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 so 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
