To Those 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 mustn’t tie yourself to me in 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 traveled alone.

    So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,

    Then let your grief be comforted by trust.

    It’s only for awhile that we must part

    So bless the memories within 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,

And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear

    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 a “Welcome Home.”

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to First Christian Church, 900 Sixth St., Pawnee, OK, 74058, or American Brain Tumor Association, 8550 W Bryn Mawr Ave., Suite 550, Chicago, IL, 60631.
