Miss Me, But Let Me Go

I have 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 for long
And not with your 
head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared,
Miss me, but 
let me go.
For this journey that we all must take
And each must go alone;
It's all a 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 your sorrows in doing 
good deeds.
Miss me, but let me go.
