The Last Battle Unknown Author

Being a Nurse for 40 plus years, when I came across this poem, it made absolute sense on how to handle such a delicate and stressful situation of a loved one who wishes to pass on with dignity and not have to linger on in pain or misery or feeling they are a burden to their family.
I hope this helps you and your loved ones in some way as to look at things in a different light, and a deeper understanding of the right of choice every human being has been given from the day one was born into this world.


The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,...

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow weak,
 And pain should keep me from my sleep,
 Then you must do what must be done,
 For this last battle cannot be won.


You will be sad, I understand;
 Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
 For this day more than all the rest,
 Your love for me must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years -
What is to come can hold no fears.
 You'd not want me to suffer so;
 The time has come, so let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend
 And please stay with me until the end.
 Hold me firm and speak to me
 Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
 The kindness that you did for me.
 Although my tail its last has waved,
 From pain and suffering, I've been saved.

Please do not grieve - it must be you
 Who had this painful thing to do.
 We've been so close, we two, these years -
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
