When I Am Gone

When I am gone release me

Let me go, I have so many things to see and do

You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears

Be happy that we had so many beautiful years

I gave to 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 awhile for me, if grieve you must

Then let your grief be comforted by my trust

It's only for awhile 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 or touch me, I'll be near

And if you listen within your heart you'll hear

All my love around you soft and clear

And then when you must come this way alone

I'll greet you with a smile and say

"Welcome Home."
