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 be a little, but not too long,

And not with a head bowed low.

Remember the love that once was shared;

Miss me but let me go.

For this journey we must all take,

And each must go alone.

It is part of the Master’s plan –

A step on the road to home

When you are lonely and sick of heart,

Go to friends we know;

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds

Miss me but let me go.

In Loving Memory of

Robert Dixon
