Unplugging Dad. Full Harvest moon in September. Euthanasia.


Open your eyes
Let me hear you one last time
Let me see your wisdom shine
Would you open up your eyes?

Give me one more frame of mind
Why it feels so good to cry
Gear you down and let you die

We have come to say goodbye
Kiss your cheek and comb your hair
We have come for one last prayer

We have come to hold your hand
Watch your blood and one last tear
Float away on one last tide

By the pull of harvest moon
By the waxing and the ripe
Here’s a perfect day to die
