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 we once shared


Miss me, but let me go.


For this is a journey we all must make,


And each must go alone,


It’s all a part of the master plan,


A step in the road to home.


When you are lonely and sick at heart,


Go to the friends you know,


And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds.


Miss me, but let me go.
