To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, Release me, Let me go - I have so many
things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with
tears, Be thankful for our beautiful years.
I gave to you my love, You can only guess
how much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for
the love you each have shown, but now it's time I traveled
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must, then
let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for
a time that we must part so bless the memories within
I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me,
call, and I will come. Though you can't see me or touch
me, I'll be near and if you listen with your heart, you'll
hear all my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet
you with a smile and say:
