To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go.

I have so many things to see and do.

You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears.

Be thankful for our many beautiful years.

I gave to you love, you can only guess — how much you gave to me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown but now it is time I traveled on alone.

So grieve a while for me, if you must.

Then let your grief be comforted by trust — It is only for a time, 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 my love around you, soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and say, “Welcome home.”
