May I Go Now?

Do you think the time is right?

May I say goodbye to pain filled days

And endless lonely night?

I’ve 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 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 love 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.

that 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.

Susan A. Jackson
