To Those I Love

When I am gone, just release me, let me go – so I can move into my afterglow.

You mustn’t tie me down with your tears; let’s be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave me happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve for me awhile, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust.

It’s only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart.

And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll great you with a smile and a

“Welcome Home.”
