To Those I Love and Those Who Love...

Now That I’m 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 happy that we had so many years.
I gave to you my love. You can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness.
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. 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!"
