To Those Whom I Love and Those Who Love Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go;
I have so many things to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that I have 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 have shown
But now it is time I traveled on alone
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories in your heart
I will not be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you can not see or touch me, I' will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All of my love around you soft and clear
Then when you must come this way alone
I'll greet you with a hug and smile and welcome you home.
