When I am gone, release me, let me go,
I have so many things to see and do,
You musn’t tie yourself to me in tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave to you my love, you can only guess,
How much you gave to me in happiness,
I thank you for the love you each have
So grieve a while if grieve you must,
Then left your grief be comforted by trust,
It’s only for a while we must part,
So bless the memories within 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 my love around you, soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way
I’ll greet you with a smile and a
We lost a mother with a heart of gold,
How much we miss her can never be told,
She shared our troubles and helped us
If we follow in her footsteps
we will never go wrong.
We miss you from your fireside chair,
Your loving smile and gentle air,
Your vacant place no one can fill,
We miss you mother and always will.
She was a mother so very rare,
Content in her home and always there,
On earth she toiled, in Heaven she rests,
God bless you mother, you were one of the
Each time we look at your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
Don’t be sad but courage take,
And love each other for my sake.
The happy hours we once enjoyed,
How sweet their memory sill,
But death has left a vacant place,
This world can never fill.
We sat beside your bedside,
And watched you fade away;
And though our hearts were breaking,
We knew you could not stay.
Remember O Most gracious
Virgin Mary, that never
was it known that anyone
who fled to Thy Protection,
implored Thy help, or sought
Thy intercession, was left unaided.
Along a road of suffering
You found a little lane
That took you up to Heaven
And ended all your pain.
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am a diamonds glint on snow,
To my dearest friends and family,
Some things I’d like to say,
First of all to let you know,
That I arrived today.
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
A little pair of Rosary Beads –
As plain as plain can be.
But only God in heaven knew,
How dear they were to me.
