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 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.
