WHEN I AM GONE When I am gone, release me, let me go - I have so many things to see and do you mustn't tie yourself to me with tears, but be thankful for our beautiful years. I gave 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 traveled on alone. So grieve awhile 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, My spirit lives though my body's gone, And if you listen with your heart you'll hear 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."
