“To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me”
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, we had so many years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it’s time I traveled alone.
So grieve a while 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 those memories in 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 with all 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”.
“Eternal Father, open your gates today to the most miserable of your children, but one who greatly longs to see you. O Mary, my dear Mother, come to me. You know that I love you and I long to see You” (The last words of Saint Jeanne Jugan)
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
