When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had our years.
I gave you my love...You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But it's time I travel on alone.
So grieve awhile for me...If grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for awhile that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away..for life goes on..
So if you need me...call...and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me...I'll be near,
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and welcome you home.
