Weep Not for Me

Imminency is before us
as vitality begins to wane
lover I am bound to you
yet still, unable to remain

Time to leave this transient life
sensing the reaper as he nears
be brave my beloved husband
my need for solace, greater than your fears

For I have struggled far too long
fighting until I meet defeat
tired, fatigued, and weary
this sickness I cannot beat

You have watched me battle
far more than what is fair
your tears betray your eyes
I am witness to your despair

I have loved you so profoundly
hold my devotion in your heart
but we must prepare for death
as I am destined to depart

We have known true happiness
a genuine love so tender
my adoration and reverence
you must always remember

Forever I will be with you
remaining alive in memory
so, I beg of you my darling
please do not weep for me
