May I Go?

May I go now? Do you think the time is right?

May I say good-bye to you and sleepless days and nights?

Iíve lived my life and done my best, an example I tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond and set my spirit free?

I didnít want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me near to a warm and
loving light.

I want to go. I really do. Itís 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 youíre sad and so afraid, because I see your tears.

Iíll not be far, I promise that, and hope youíll 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.
Thatís why itís 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, youíll let me go
today.
