Miss Me But Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun is set on me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long
And not with a head bent low
Remember the love that we once shared.
Miss me but let me go
For this is a journey that we all
Must take and each must go alone
It is all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of
Heart go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds
Miss me but let me go.
