To Those Whom I Love & Those Who Love Me
"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 we had so many good years.
I gave to you my love, and you can only guess How much you've given me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, for grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It is only for a while that we must part, So treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on. And if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near. And if you listen with 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'."
