To Those I Love
When I am gone, release me,
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had those precious years.
I gave to you my Heart and 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 travelled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by “Trust”
It’s only for awhile we must part,
So 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 me or touch me, I’ll be near;
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear;
All of my caring love around you strong and clear;
And then when you must come this way alone…
I’ll greet you with a smile and say, “Welcome Home”.
