To Those I Love

And Those Who Love Me

While 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 happy that we had so many beautiful years.

I gave to you my 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's time I traveled on alone.

To grieve for me a while if grieve you must.

Then let your grief be comforted by trust, It's

only a while that we must part, To 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"
