May I Go?

Get your tissues ready!!!!

May I Go?
By Susan A. Jackson

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to the pain filled days
And end the lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
An example tired 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 my 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 are 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.

Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That?s why it?s so 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.

Ellen, I just can't read these things. This is the third one this week and they make me so sad I just can't stand it.
