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 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 all the things we once shared,
Miss me — but let me go.

For this a journey 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 to the friends you know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds,
Miss me — but let me go.
