If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
and pain does keep me from my sleep,
then will you do what must be done
for this , the last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
But don't let grief then stay your hand.
For, on this day, more than the rest,
your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years.
You wouldn't want me to suffer, so
when the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend.
Only, stay with me 'til the end,
and hold me firm and speak to me
until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
it is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail it's last has waved,
from pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must now 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.
