When I AM Gone

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 gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love each have shown,
But for 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 bless those memories within your heart.
I will not be far away, for life goes on.
so if you need me, call and I will come
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen to your heart, you will hear
All of my love around you, soft and clear.
Then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home"
