When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom filled room

Why cry for a soul 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 a part of the Master’s plan

A seat on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go to the friends you know,

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds

Miss me – but let me go.
