To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go -
I have so much to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be thankful for our many happy 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 that you have shown,
But now it's time I travelled on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if gieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted with trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
So keep my memory within your heart.
Feed not your loneliness on emtpy days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways,
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near,
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
