To Those I Love And Those

Who Loved Me

When I am gone, release me, let me go – –

I have so many things so see and do,

You musn’t tie yourself to me with tears;

Be happy that we had these precious years.

I gave to 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 travelled on 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 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 of 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 “Welcome home”.

To my Father — Hero — Best Friend

Thank you. You will never be forgotten
