To Those I Love

To Those I Love

From A 5th Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul

To Those I Love

When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t 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 to me in happiness
I thank you for the love you have shown
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.
So grieve awhile 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 with your heart.
I won’t be far away, for 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 welcome you home.
