Let Me Go

It is difficult when someone you love is dying. Often, I think, we have the tendency to hold on to them and try to keep them with us just a little longer. The song, "Let Me Go" looks at this situation from the perspective of the person who has made peace with his/her impending death and is ready to move on to the next life, even while loved ones attempt to hang on.

Let Me Go
Let me go. Let me go. Won't you please let me go?
I am tired. I'm in pain. Let me go.
I've lived long on this earth
From the day of my birth.
Won't you please, won't you please let me go?

Shall I pray for the strength just to live one more day,
Give you time to prepare for my death?
Touch my face. Take my hand
Won't you please understand
And allow me to take my last breath?

Though I know it is tough, can't you love me enough
To be willing to let me go?
There's a tear in your eye.
You are saying, "Goodbye,"
And I thank you for letting me go.
