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 to 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 is all part of the Master’s plan; A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart; go to the friends we know and bury your sorrow in doing good deeds; Miss me but let me go.
