The pain wonít go, my sight is gone,
Iím weary and frail, but I soldier on,
Living on memories of what Iíve done,
I could do with someone to care for me now.
There are nurses and carers, but Iím all alone
My sons are busy with lives of their own
Their families love them, though theyíve grown,
I could do with someone to visit me now
Once, I thought I could manage, and sent him away
For the stresses of marriage, Iíd make him pay,
But now life without him, it seems so grey,
I could do with someone to hold me now.
I pray for the end of my time in this place,
I have done my bit for the human race
Itís time to meet Him face-to-face
I could do with someone to take me now.
