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 that we once shared,
Miss me-but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s 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 sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me – but let me go.
