You came to see me again today
I can hear ev'ry word you say
I can see how much this is hurting you
It's something I just cannot do.

I heard the doctors say they'd give
me only a few more days to live
but somehow I have lingered on
when long ago I should have gone.

Each day you sit beside me there
Stuck in limbo, it's not fair,
you should be able to hope or mourn,
it's killing you, you gotta move on.

We've talked about it at great length.
I know it's hard to find the strength,
but I don't want to stay in this shell
when it's making your life a living hell.

My love for you once more I'll prove.
I force imagined muscles to move.
I must do this while I'm still able.
I reach out and disconnect the cable.
