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 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 friend we know and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss me - But let me go.
