"To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me"
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so much to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you cannot guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown.
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that 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 or touch me, I'll be there.
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 "Welcome Home."
