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 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 a part of the Master’s Plan A step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick of heart Go the friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds. Miss Me – But Let Me Go! -Author Unknown
