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

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 take,

And each must go alone.

It’s 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!
