When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me

I want no rights in a gloom filled room.

Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little but not too long

And not with your head bowed low,

Remember the love we once shared.

Miss me but let me go for this is a journey we

all must take and each must go alone.

It’s all part of the master plan,

A step on the road to home.
