When I am gone, release me, let me go,
I have so many things to see and do,
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
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 have shown,
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 with you 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 or touch me, I will be near,
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear,
All of my love around you, soft and clear,
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with smiles, and welcome you home !
