It's Ok To Go
by Lori Boust
You were sick and tired and we all knew
that God would soon come to take you.
You fought so hard, so very long,
but through the pain, you stayed so strong.
We all knew there would come a day
when God would come to carry you away.
It doesn't make it easier to say goodbye,
and I try so hard not to cry.
I can't help but feel defeated,
or even maybe a little cheated.
But how very selfish would I be,
to hope and pray you could stay with me.
So as you laid there, tubes running to and fro,
I had to tell, "It's ok to go."
Say "hi" to loved ones waiting on the other side.
I know someday you'll be there when I take a ride.
