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 set 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's Plan,
 step on the road to home.
Miss me but let me go.
