Going to Heaven
When I am gone, release me, let me go I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn’t tie yourselves to me with tears,
just be happy that we had some years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess how much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown, but now it’s time I traveled on alone.
Do grieve a while for me if you must then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part, so keep our memories within your hearts.
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’ll be near, and if you listen with your heart you will hear, all of my love around so soft and dear.
And then when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and say welcome home.
