When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many

things to see and do.

You mustnt tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy

that we had so many 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 have shown But now its

time I travel on alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you

must Then let your grief be comforted by trust.

Its only for a little while that we must part, So

bless the memories within your heart. I wont be far away, for

life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though

you cant see or touch me, Ill be near. And if you listen

with your heart youll hear All of my love around you soft and


And then, when you must come this way alone Ill

greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home."
