Some lovely words sent to comfort me in my grief:-
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this the last battle, can’t be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
Don’t let this grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship 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,
When the time comes, please let me go.
I know in time that you will see,
It is a kindness that you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve it should be you,
Who decides this thing to do.
We’ve been so close, we two, these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
Smile – for we walked together,
For a little while.
