In Sickness 'Till Death Do Us Part I

Patient:
Let me go
Say all your goodbyes
Accept my death (as I did)
Inevitable for all life

Mother:
No! I can't! This comes way too soon!
How can I let go of you now?


Goodbye, I'm free now!
Don't grieve! I'm gone, let me go!
My death meant peace for me!

Let me go but keep me alive within your heart (memories)
And promise me that I'll remain

In my very soul you'll live on
Even when I let you go you're still there
A piece of myself will die with you, but let go, end your pain


Feel no grief
Embrace salvation

My pain is gone while yours goes on (just began)
But live your life (for me too)

Goodbye, I'm free now!
Don't grieve! I'm gone, let me go!
My death meant my peace
When all goodbyes are said
Farewell! This ends here!
Don't mourn, I'm free, let it go!
I found peace in my death

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is self-explanatory by the booklet. There are two characters, a patient, suffering from a very serious illness, makes him/her undergo in a deep agony. On the other side, there's the patient's mother. While the patient wants to let go, so that the pain will end, his/her mother can't afford the idea to lose him/her. However, she ends up accepting the idea, for the good of her son/daughter, than he/she needs to let go, to find peace in his/her death.
