I Just Can't Put You Through This

I was doing just fine alone with my illness
Why did you have to come into my life?
This is happening at the wrong time
I have brain cancer, it’s an incurable disease
Medical science can’t do anything more for me
How could you love me when I’m dying?
.

My condition is worsening day by day
What will you do when my body starts to deteriorate?
I shan’t look the same way I do now.
Will you be able to cope with the situation?
It will be an unpleasant sight to behold
If I lose my sanity, I couldn’t appreciate your love
.

You say no matter what happens you won’t leave me
I have no chance of ever recovering
Although you know that there’s no future for us,
You want to stay by my side until I breathe my last breath
I can see what this is doing to you
You cry at my bedside and it tears my heart in two
.

It will soon be over and your heart will be free
You know that I truly love you, Jade
I’m strong and I’m not scared to die
Your love gives me the courage to face death,
But I just can’t put you through this
Move on with your life before your grief gets greater
Darling, I want you to go away now
