Miss Me – But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road,

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites 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 that we once shared,

Miss Me – But Let Me Go.

For this is a journey that we all must take,

And each must go alone.

It’s all part of the Master’s plan,

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart

Go to the friends we know

And bury your sorrows

In doing good deeds,

Miss Me – But Let Me Go.
