Miss Me and 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?

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 must all 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.

This anonymous poem, whom several people have tried to claim as their own, probably dates from around the time of The First World War. Linda read it at our service on Remembrance Sunday. It is a poem she is fond of and she said that she has asked to have it read at her own funeral, as it is an uplifting poem. A better world than this one awaits us after the change we call death. As Spiritualists we know this, so we can understand why this poem is urging us to be happy for the friends and loved-ones who have to take their leave of us, rather than be sad for ourselves.
