Let Me Bleed

Let me bleed, let me drain my life away,

Let me leave the world this day.

I gaze out on the vistas beyond.

Let there be no tears,

I have no fears.

I know that we have forged a bond

You know me well and wish me all the best

But hope cannot be found

On this death ground

Where I will find my rest.

Know this, my closest friend 

There was a beginning, now there is an end,

But know also my life was good.

I sought to serve, I knew I could

Be one who made a difference

In every way and in every sense.

And this my friend has been so true

As you know well who has seen it too.

The honor we have won, we share this you know.

You have never been slow

To be with me

Wherever we had to go.

But you may not share this journey, this last tour of duty I take alone.

Don't mind my gasps, don't mind my groan,

Just let me bleed, it will set me free.

Gaze out upon the vistas beyond,

Hold fast to honor and to our bond.
