How do you let a friend go?
How do you beg them to stay?
So body weary they are
It shines in their eyes
The begging for sweet release
Yet I desire to scream
Stay with me for just one more day
Stay for a week a month at least
If I could but take your pain
Just bear if for a day would you stay?
I talk and talk hoping to distract you
May the grim reaper not hear you call?
Hide you behind my words from angels
But I am a friend in the end
And when the time comes I will let go
I love you, love you enough to let go
