To Those I Love &
Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me,
let me goI have so many
things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself
to me with tears, Be thankful
for our 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.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief
be comforted by trust.
It's only for a time 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 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 …
