Need to live

How we all try our best to hang on,
Know some of us can't fight that 
We watch as it's pain over takes you,
We watch in sadness because this is 
all we can do.
I sensed your frailty within the tone 
of your voice,
If we could change places, I'd make 
that choice.
I don't want to lose you now or 
I plead and plead for the day your 
Such words of truth from the heart, 
But know this is but a small part.
Yes! At times it feels we can't win,
But truth is, you have the strength 
Focus on all your grins and true 
Then happiness grows with no 
But those days seem so far away 
from today,
No! I will never leave you alone or 
agree to walk away.
For this world would dim without 
you here.
Know your worth through me, my 
You are my friend, my only one who 
knows me,
Please never give up, please live. 
Oh, please believe.
There are others who would grieve 
to see you go,
With your smiles, laughter, all the 
things we love and know,
That makes you worth every night 
we spend by your side,
If you gave up, you wouldn't be the 
only thing that died.
We cling to to each other for 
strength to overcome,
Through God above, thy kingdom 
come, thy will be done,
This time is not your time, so please 
hang on,
And know you don't fight alone, no 
matter how long.
Believe and see how much you are 
loved by us,
If you lose hope let us help you to 
Release the negative and revive in 
the positive,
Because I care enough to see you
