When is it time to say goodbye to all the love I've known when is it time to end your pain andd leave me all alone ? I've watched youu on your good days when I feel your strength renewed , but shortly after little ups the down days then ensue . We ride this roller-coaster of emotions as we try to make it through another day andd yet , I can't deny . That as I look into your face on days that have been bad , I see a look that beckons me . It's tired , hurt , andd sad . The little spark I used to see behind those loving eyes is growing ever clouded by life's cruel inhumane side . I try to see beyond the pain . Youu feel with every step andd softly whisper to myself this may get better yet . If I can bear to watch youu just another day or two . I justify my reasons to ensure I cling to youu for letting go is harder for the person left behind . It means that if I let youu go , I cannot turn back time . Back to the days I long for now , when youu were full of life andd every day held promise andd our futures , clear and bright . But now the lights are darkening . We take it daily now , I cannot see our futures clear or think beyond this cloud . I think the hardest part in this is never knowing why , I have to be courageous andd I have to say goodbye for if I let myself admit it's time to let youu go , I'd have to face reality without youu but I know . That soon I have to face the final outcome that I dread andd holding on will only serve to hurt youu in the end . You've given such unselfish love for all our time in life , but if I hold too tightly , You'll not move t'ward the light on to a better life where youu can once again be free of all the pain andd discomfort that holds youu here to me . So if I find the courage just to say this last farewell , I hope youu will forgive me for he time it took me still . I'll hold with me , the memories that in my heart remain , Pray one day , down the road always they'll lesson my own pain .
