Miss Me, But Let Me Go By Edgar Albert Guest


Death is inevitable and everyone is destined to leave this world. Howsoever sad you may be, you cannot bring a dead person back to life or go with him. Once a person is dead, all his sins, sorrows, afflictions, temptations, vexations, oppressions, and persecutions cease to exist. Death is a liberator and grieving around corpus or graveyard is futile. The best way possible to say to goodbye to the deceased is to stay calm during the funeral and remember the wonderful times you spent with him. In the poem 'Miss Me, But Let Me Go', Albert Guest asks people not to mourn his death. He requests them to miss him a little, but not for too long; and let him go on his journey to the other life.
 
Miss Me, But Let Me Go

 

When I come to the end of the road

And the sun has set for me,

I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,

Why cry for a soul set free!

Miss me a little - but not for long

And not with your head bowed low.

Remember the love that we once shared,

Miss me, but let me go.

For this journey that we all must take

And each must go alone;

It's all a part of the Master's plan

A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart

Go to the friends we know,

And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.

Miss me, but let me go.
