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 are 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 loved you too.
That’s why it’s hard to say good-bye 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
