Poem

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!

 

~Robyn Rancman
