When I cannot bear to be alone,
And I can taste the end in my mouth,
Stay with me.
When the time has come for the unraveling,
And the hour to choose has fled,
Remain here with me.
When I must wait in silent prayer,
And others speak my fate,
Keep watch with me.
When darkness has covered the earth,
And what’s left of me is taken,
For I know that this is nothing
You have not chosen for yourself.
