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 me a little-but not too long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that we once shared Miss me- but let me go For this is a journey we all must take And each must go alone It's all a part of the master plan A step on the road to home When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the friends we know And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds Miss me-but let me go JENKENS FUNERAL HOME CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE
