Miss Me — But Let Me Go


A volunteer friend passed away suddenly last week. May his wife and children embrace peace and hope in this dedication.

Author unknown

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 that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan,
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
Miss Me — But Let me Go!

    Thank you for this. I like the title of the poem v much. It ties in with all that I am experiencing in my life on death & dying.

    I was reading a book “Ageless body, timeless mind’ by Deepak Chopra. And there’s this line “”I carry the consciousness of immortality in the midst of mortality” my inner truth says”.

    Share with you.

    It is very reassuring to have your parents, grandparents and relatives, people whom you love and care and trust , by your side. Celebrate the time you have with them, since once it passes, you can never have it back.
