  • Mary walks
    Down to the water's edge
    And there she hangs her head
    To find herself faded
    A shadow of what she once was
    She said "How long have I been sleeping
    And why do I feel so old
    Why do I feel so cold
    My heart is saying one thing but my body won't let go"
    With trembling hands she reaches up
    A stranger's flesh is offered
    And I would be the last to know
    I would be the last the let it show
    I would be the last to go
    Take her hand
    She will lead you through the fire
    Give you back hope
    And hope that you won't take too much
    Respecting what is left
    She cradled us
    She held us in her arms
    Unselfish in her suffering she could not understand
    That no one seemed to have the time
    To cherish what was given
    And I would be the last to know
    And I would be the last to let it show
    I would be the last to go...
    Mary walks
