Miss Me But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set me free,

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 that we all must take and each must go alone.

It's all a part of the Master'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 sorrow in doing good deeds,

Miss me but let me go.
