When I am gone, release me-let me go

I have so many things to see and do.

You must not tie yourself to me with tears

Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you love, you can only guess,

How much you both gave me in happiness.

I thank you for the love each have shown.

But now it is time I traveled alone.

So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,

Then let your grief be comforted by trust.

It is only for a while that we must part. 

So my son and daughter bless those memories

Within in your hearts.
