Is the time fast approaching
When we say goodbye
Has the pain of your life
Come to take you home

Has the fight deep inside you
Reached exhaustion
Do you long for the peace
Where no one else can go

I watch and see you slipping slowly away
The light of your life flickers day by day
Will you still be here in the morning
Or will you breathe you final breath and fly on home.

Is the loneliness you feel
For the one you loved
Burning deep inside your heart
Leaving a hole

Do you yearn for peace
Of heart and mind
Yet find it hard to say goodbye
And just let go

I watch and see you slipping slowly away
The light of your life flickers day by day
Will you still be here in the morning
Or will you breathe you final breath and fly on home.

I know that I’ll be lonely
When you decide to go
I will miss the love and warmth
You always showed

But I would never want you
To remain if your heart aches
I would never hold you here
To suffer so.

I watch and see you slipping slowly away
The light of your life flickers day by day
Will you still be here in the morning
Or will you breathe you final breath and fly on home.
