Don't obsess about death... 
It will be here soon... 
There are more pleasant things on a summer afternoon... 
My IV isn't as comfortable as before... Hallucinations of water on the floor... 
I grip but can't hold...  I see but can't see... 
You've always meant so very much to me... 
I cough and I breathe, but it's hard to conceive, that the air in these lungs will soon make its leave... 
Leave me alone, just let me sleep... 
The secrets I have, I promise to keep...
