For Those I Love –
For Those Who Love Me
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 that we had so many years.
I have you my love. You can only guess
How much you gave me of happiness.
I thank you for the love you all 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 live goes on;
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can’t see 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 them when you must come this way alone,
I’ll greet you with a smile and “Welcome Home.”
