To Those I Love

To those 1 love and those that love me.

When I am gone, release me, let me go

1 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 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 travel alone

So grieve for 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 bless the memories within your 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 me or touch me, I’ll be near

And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear

All my love around you so soft and clear

And then, when you must come this way alone

I’ll greet you with a smile and say,

“Welcome Home.’”
