FOR THOSE I LOVE, FOR THOSE WHO LOVE ME
I have so many things to see & 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 me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown.
But now it’s time I travel on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must.
And let your grief be comforted by trust.
It’s only for a while that we must part.
So bless the memories that lie within your heart.
I won’t be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call & I will come.
If you can’t see me or touch me, know I’ll be near.
If you listen with your heart, you will hear all of my love around you soft & clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone….
I’ll greet you with a smile & say “Welcome home.”
