May I go now?
Don't 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 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 for loving me.
You know I loved you too.
That's why it' 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.
Graveside services will be held May 14 at the Wellington City Cemetery at 11 a.m. A viewing will be held one hour prior to service at Fausett Mortuary in Price.
