            KISS ME, BUT LET ME GO

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.


Kiss 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 a journey that we all must take,

And each must go alone.

It’s all a part on 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,

Kiss me, but let me go.
