May I go now?
I've lived my life and done my best,
I didn't want to go at first,
I want to go. I really do.
To give you time to care for me
I'll not be far, I promise that,
Thank you so for loving me.
So hold me now just one more time
When you look up at the
stars at night you will see me shining bright,
the brightest star that you can see, rest assured that's me.
I shine with all my might, hoping to make your burden light.
Praying that you will eventually see, that what you did for me, set me free.
My body may not come when you whistle , though I know you feel me near
A faint meow you will hear, my whisper of love is always near.
