    Let me go, I have so many things

    To see and do. You mustn't tie

    yourself to me in tears.

    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 a while for me,

    If grieve you must, 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

    and if you need me, call and I

    will come, Though you can't

    see or touch me, I'll be near

    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!"

    Absent from the body, present

    with the Lord.

    Nothing dies, that is remembered.
