If it should be that I grow week
and pain should keep me from my sleep
then you must do what must be done
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 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 need 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 that in time you will see
the kindness that you do 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 has this painful thing to do
we’ve been so close for all those years
don’t let your heart hold back the tears.
