"Miss Me but Let Me Go"
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in gloom-filled rooms
Why cry for a soul set free
Miss me a little, but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me but let me go
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone
It's all part of the Master's Plan
A step on the road to HOME
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And busy your sorrows
In doing good deeds
Miss me, but let me go.
