To those I love and those who loved me
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,
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave to you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it’s time I travelled 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 while 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 me 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
