When I am gone, release me, let 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 years. I gave
you my love, you can only guess how
much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each
have shown, but now it's time
I traveled on alone. So grieve a while
for me if you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a while
that we must part, so keep the memories
within your heart. I won't be far away,
or 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 with your heart, you'll hear all of
my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must
come this way, I'll greet you with a smile,
