Goodbye


Let me tell you a story, my friend.
Take my hand and let me show you the end.
Do you see the light all the way down there?
You are a fool to think death is despair.

Look at me and understand,
Life and death go hand and hand.
We all must die in due time,
Please do not cry, there has been no crime.

I will take good care of him, you'll see.
Soon you too will be side by side with me.
Again, do not fear,
I am sincere and peace is here.

I know you fret, I know you flounder,
But I am simply the next step after life's encounter.
You can not flee, even if you try,
But I will be here when you're ready to say goodbye.
