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 is a journey that we all must take
And each one must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know
and bury you sorrows
in doing good deeds.
Miss me – but let me go.

Christina Georgina Rossetti
