To Those I Love When I am gone, just release me, Let me go --- so I can move into my Afterglow. You mustn't tie me down With your tears; let's 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 traveled on alone. So, grieve for me awhile, if grieve You must, then let your grief be comforted With trust. It's only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. And then when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home."
