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 once was 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 at heart,
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing
Miss me – But let me go.
