In loving memory of Mary Faulkner, who passed away Oct. 10, 1990.

For Those I Loved ...

For Those Who Loved 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 that we 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 each have shown,

But now it’s time I traveled on, alone.

So grieve awhile 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 that lie 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.

And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear;

All of 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!”
