Today's the day he's going to die
Today's the day I'm going to cry
I cuddled him, but he was gone
He'd told me life must carry on
Lifeless and limp he lay in the chair
I really feel this life's unfair
When he took his last breath I said goodbye
As I looked to God to question why
We'd had good times along the way
As brother and sister we loved to play
When I got married he was there
When I was hurt, he would care
When he died, part of me died too
But his time was up which we both knew
