Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
why cry for a soul set free? 

Miss me a little, but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
miss me, but let me go. 

For this is a journey that we all must take
and each must go alone.
It is all part of the Master’s plan
a step on the road to home. 

When you are lonely and sick of heart,
go to the friends we know,
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me – but let me go.
