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 is a journey we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It is all part of the Master's plan
A step on the road to home.
So when you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know,
Bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me – but let me go.
