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. Author: Anonymous
