?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, Don?t tie yourself to me with tears, be happy that we had so many years, I gave you Love?.You can only guess how much you gave me in happiness, I thank you for the love you each have shown, But it is time I travel alone?.So grieve awhile for me, Grieve you, must. Then let your grief be comfort by trust, It?s only for a while that we must part. So Bless the memories within your heart, I won?t be far away, for life goes on, Though You can?t see or touch me, I will be near, If you listen with your heart, you will hear, All my love around you soft and clear, and then when you must come this way alone, I will greet you with a smile and a ?Welcome Home?.
