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 happy we had so many years.
I give you my love, you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown me.
But now it’s time I travel alone.
So grieve a while for me, 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.
I won’t be far away for life goes on.
So if you need me, call me and I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear all my love around you,
soft and clear.
And when you must come this way along, I’ll greet you with a smile, And
