“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 was one shared
Miss me - - but let me go.
For this is a journey we must all take
and each must go alone.
It is all a part of the Master’s plan
a step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me - - but let me go.
