When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You must not tie yourself to me with tears
But be happy that I have had so many years

I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness
I thank you for the love you have shown
But now it is time I travelled alone

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It is only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories in your heart

I will not be far away, for life goes on
So if you need me, call and I will come
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear

All of my love around you soft and clear
Then, when you must come this way alone
I will greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home"

I've copied that and kept it because I think it is so lovely. Another nice one is:-

Do not grieve when I am gone
I am the star that you'll look on
I am the love of an embrace
I am the wind you feel on your face
The sweetest note of the most beautiful song
So do not greive for I am not gone

Thank you for that.

My daughter's boyfriend's grandfather is dying and the lad has never lost a close family member before. I have saved it in case I feel he needs it soon.

Where did that come from at what should be a joyous time for you Malc?

Can you put it on the Remember me thread please if I nudge it up or can I copy it to there?

Someone sent my Aunt this as it would have been my Uncles Birthday on the 15th June. I thought it was lovely and something that would be appropriate for GR.
