To Those I love & Leave Behind
When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not 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 me in happiness.
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must.
Then let your grief be comforted 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, and life goes on,
so if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me.
I'll be near and if you listen with your heart,
You'll hear all of my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say,
Therese Marie Horn
