Miss Me But Let Me Go


When I come to the end of the day,

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 take

And each must go alone,

It’s all part of the Maker’s plan

A step on the road to home. . .

When you are lonely and sick at heart,

Go to the friends we know and

bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,

Miss me – but let me go.
