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 we all must make,

and each must go alone.

It’s all part of the Masters plan;

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart,

Go to the friends we know.


Miss me, but let me go
