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 set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long
and not with your head bowed low
Remember the love 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's part of the Master's plan
a step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
go with the friends we know
and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me -- but let me go.
