When I am gone, release me. let me go
I have so many things to see and do.
You musn't tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it's time to travel on alone.
so grieve awhile for me, it you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for awhile 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 me or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All of 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."

God saw you getting tired
A cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me."

With tearful eyes I watched you
And saw you fade away.
Although I loved you dearly
I could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Your tender hands at rest.
God took you home to prove to me
He only takes the best.
