When I grew frail and weak
And pain prevented my peaceful sleep,
Then you have done what must be done
As this last battle could not be won
You are sad, I understand.
Selfishness stayed your hand.
But on that day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship took the test.
We have had so many happy years
That what has come could hold no fears.
You did not want me to suffer, so,
When the time came, you let me go.
You took me where my needs were tended.
And you stayed with me until the end.
You held me firm and spoke to me.
Until my eyes could no longer see.
I know, in time, you too will see it is kindness that you done for me.
Although my mighty pff pff pff are now silent and my eyes cannot longer see,
From pain and suffering you saved me and now I can sleep peacefully.
Do not grieve it should be you who must decide this thing to do.
We have been so close, us two, these years...
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
