  6. Miss me, but let me go.

    Now I have 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, but not with your head bowed,
    Close your eyes and you will see
    All the memories you have of me.

    This is a journey we all must take,
    and each must go alone,
    It’s all part of life’s master plan,
    A step on the road to home.
    Life holds many facets
    This earth is but only one.

    Think of me but not with tears,
    I am resting in a place where there is no dark or cold, no days or years.
    I am in the land of song, there is no pain or fear,
    So dry away that silent tear.

    When you are lonely and my absence pulls at you most,
    Go to the Family, Friends you know and love,
    Remember….Nothing loved is ever truly lost.

    Miss me but let me go.
