May you reach the promised land

I have loved you and I’ve held you.

Many years,you have been mine;

If the time has come for parting

Let us embrace for one last time.

You  must know you have to leave me,

Though you desired a longer stay.

Let me hold you in my arms now

For  tonight and  one  more day.

Then I’ll watch you travel on,love.

We  take this last step all alone.

I’ll be here beside you watching.

I shall feel when you are gone.

May you accept, may you surrender.

 May you reach the promised land.

Into this earth my tears will fall, love,

As I recall your tender hands.
