To those I love and those who love me

the following poem was read at my friend's father's memorial service on Satuday. 

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 that we had so many years

I gave you my love; you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness
I thank you for the love we each have shown
But now it's time I traveled on alone

So grieve 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 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 hear
And if you listen with your heart
You will hear
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 Home"
