~ If It Should Be ~

If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me
from my sleep
Then you must do what
must be done
For this last battle
cannot be won.

You will be sad I understand-
Don’t let your grief
then stay your hand
For this day more than all the rest
Your love for me must stand the test.

We’ve had so many happy years
What is to come can hold no fears
You’d not want me to suffer so-
The time has come
please let me go.

Take me where my needs
they’ll tend
And please stay with me
until the end
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me
Although my tail it’s last has waved
From pain and suffering
I’ve been saved.

Please do not grieve it must be ‘you’
Who had this painful thing to do
We’ve been so close we two
these years…
Don’t let your heart hold
back it’s tears.
