When I have 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 the love that we once shared,

Miss me- but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take,

And each must go alone.

It’s all part of the Master’s plan,

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart,

Go to the friends we know,

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds

Miss me – but let me go.”
