Celebration Of Life

To Those whom I Love and Those Who Love me

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, we had so many years.

I gave you my love and 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 alone.

So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part
so bless those memories in your heart.

I won't be far away for 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
with all my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and
"Welcome You Home".
