Miss me but let me go

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set me free

I want no cries 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 life that we all shared.

Miss me but let me go

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.

Forever at peace
