When I am gone, just release me, let me go Ė
so I can move into my afterglow.
You mustnít tie me down with your tears; letís be happy
that we had so many years. I gave you my love;
you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
but now its time I traveled on alone. so grieve for me awhile,
If grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust.
Itís only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories with your heart.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
Iíll greet you with a smile and a Welcome Home.
