Miss Me, But Let Me Go

by Christina Rossetti

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!
