    When Is It Time?
    by Kit McCallum
    When is it time to say goodbye,
    To all the love I've known,
    When is it time to end your pain,
    And leave me all alone?

    I've watched you on your good days when
    I feel your strength renewed;
    But shortly after little ups,
    The down days then ensue.

    We ride this roller-coaster of
    Emotions as we try,
    To make it through another day,
    And yet, I can't deny ...

    That as I look into your face
    On days that have been bad,
    I see a look that beckons me
    It's tired, and hurt, and sad.

    The little spark I used to see
    Behind those loving eyes,
    Is growing ever clouded
    By life's cruel inhumane side.

    I try to see beyond the pain
    You feel with every step;
    And softly whisper to myself
    This may get better yet.

    If I can bear to watch you
    Just another day or two;
    I justify my reasons to
    Ensure I cling to you.

    For letting go is harder for
    The person left behind;
    It means that if I let you go,
    I cannot turn back time.

    Back to the days I long for now,
    When you were full of life;
    And every day held promise,
    And our futures, clear and bright.

    But now the lights are darkening ...
    We take it daily now;
    I cannot see our futures clear
    Or think beyond this cloud.

    I think the hardest part in this
    Is never knowing why,
    I have to be courageous
    And I have to say goodbye.

    For if I let myself admit
    It's time to let you go;
    I'd have to face reality
    Without you ... but I know ...

    That soon I have to face the
    Final outcome that I dread,
    And holding on will only serve
    To hurt you in the end.

    You've given such unselfish love
    For all our time in life,
    But if I hold too tightly,
    You'll not move t'ward the light ...

    On to a better life, where you
    Can once again be free,
    Of all the pain and discomfort
    That holds you here to me.

    So if I find the courage just to say
    This last farewell,
    I hope you will forgive me for
    The time it took me; still ...

    I'll hold with me, the memories
    That in my heart remain,
    Pray one day, down the road a'ways
    ... They'll lesson my own pain.
