    May I Go? May I go now?
    Do you think the time is right?
    May I say good-bye to pain-filled days
    and endless lonely nights?

    I’ve lived my life and done my best,
    an example 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 live just one more day,

    To give you time to care for me
    and share your love and fears.
    I know you’re sad and so 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.

    Thank you so for loving me.
    You know I love you too.
    That’s why it’s 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,
    you’ll let me go today.

    I know it is so very hard, Mo. Harder than I can imagine really. The obstacles are so great. The pain is so great. I am sorry. Please stay. Do not go. I need you. You are needed by others as well. I know these are trite reasons to stay. But still I want you to stay
