When I am gone,release me, let me go- I have so many
things to see and do. you mustn't tie yourself to me with
tears, be thankful for our beautiful years.

I gave to you my love - you can only guess how much you
gave me in happine. I thank you for the love you each have
shown, but now it's time I travel 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- " Welcome Home!"
