To Those I Love – While I am gone just release me, let me go – so I can move into my afterglow. You mustn’t tie me down with your tears; let’s 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 traveled on alone. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted with trust. It’s only a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart. And then when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and a “Welcome Home.”
