….Miss Me But Let Me Go….
When I 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 the journey we all must take
and each must go it along
It’s all part of the Master’s plan
A step on the road to home
…..God Bless Us, Everyone….
…..Love Never Dies….
