ďWhen I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You mustnít 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 to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you have shown, but now itís time I traveled alone. So grieve a while for me if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. Itís only for a while that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. I wonít be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me call and I will come, though you canít see or touch me Iíll be there. And if you listen with your heart youíll hear, all of my love around you soft and clear. And then when you must come this way alone, Iíll greet you with a smile and welcome you home.Ē ó (Author unknown)
