If It Should Be


Recommended Posts

“IF IT SHOULD BE”

If it should be that I grow frail and weak and pain prevents my peaceful sleep, then you must do what must be done, when this last battle cannot be won.

You will be sad, I understand; Selfishness might stay your hand, but on this day, more than the rest, your love and friendship take the test.

We have had so many happy years, that what’s to come can hold no fears, You would not want me to suffer, so, when the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they will tend, only – stay with me until the end.

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 that you do for me.

Although my tail its last has waved, from pain and suffering I have been saved.

Do not grieve it should be you, who must decide this thing to do. We have been so close, we two, these years…….don’t let your heart hold any tears.
