Struggling

 

Struggling

I see you struggling to open your eyes.

Despite your efforts, you cannot see
Despite knowing just where I’ll be
Here beside you, until pain-free.

Only then can we drift apart
Only then can my sorrow start.
Behind every breath is your fading heart.


I see you struggling for peaceful sleep.

Despite your illness it is hard to rest
Despite the medicine to calm your chest
I will comfort you through this final test.

Only then can we drift apart
Only then can my sorrow start.
Behind every breath is your fading heart.


I see you struggling for every breath.

Despite your will, there is no way
Despite the fact you can hear me say
I will be with you until your final day.

Only then will we drift apart
Only then will my sorrow start.
Behind every breath is your fading heart.
