If It Should Be

If it should be that I grow frail and weak

And pain should wake me from my sleep

Then you must do what must be done

For this battle can't be won.


You will be sad, I understand.

Don't let your grief then stay your hand,

For this day more than all the rest

Your love and friendship stands the test.


We've had so many happy years,

What is to come can hold no fears,

You'll not want me to suffer, so,

When the time comes, please let me go.


Take me where my needs they’ll tend


only stay with me until the end


and hold me firm, and speak to me


until my eyes no longer see.


I know in time you too will see,

It is a kindness you do to me,

Although my tail its last has moved,

From pain and suffering I've been saved.


Don't grieve that it should be you,

Who has to decide this thing to do,

We've been so close, we two, these years,

Don't let your heart hold any tears.
