I will sing for you

I will sing for you in the dark corridors
I will sing until your sweet soul is satisfied
I will sing for you
Through radiation and exhaustion
I will sing for you
When the needles bite into your flesh
Bringing you just a moment of relief
I will sing ever so softly for you
I will sing for you
When your hair is gone
And you no longer have the strength to carry on
My darling I will sing for you
At four am when the pain is too much to bear
When your bones gave up
And your blood cells can no longer fight
I will sing for you
Through tears and heartache
I will hold your hand
Softly in mine
And I will sing for you
When your final breath
Eclipsed the daybreak
Granting you the peace you so deserve
I will be beside you
Singing sweetly, softly and tenderly
When you are laid to rest
And your pebble white gravestone is all I see
Even then and into eternity my love
I will sing for you
