Miss Me - But Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul that is free? 

Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me -- but let me go. 

For this is a journey
that we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It's all a part of the master plan
A step on the road home. 

When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know.
And bury your sorrows
in doing good deeds,
Miss me -- but let me go.

Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade;
because one loved is gone.

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory
they live on in our heart.

Think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.
