When I'M Gone - Poem by Jing Jing

Release me, let me go.
I have so Many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie your self to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love and you can only guess,
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
Buth 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 awhile that we must part
So bless the memories whitin your heart.

I wont 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 alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say, welcome home.

    Wow! you're famous! That poem is nicely framed in my secretary's office out front. Also, a couple of friends have told me that they have heard this poem at funerals before... some of them a long, long time ago.

    I am super impressed at your Christ-like behavior. I can only assume that you are Christian, since most of your plagiarism (aside from Dire Straights) is of Christian prayer books and Christian musicians.
