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 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.
