When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to do and see.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love,
You can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love
You each have shown,
But now it's time I travel on alone.
So grieve a while,
For if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
So, if you need me,
Call and I will come.
Though you cannot see 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...
