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 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.
