Let Me Go

Rating: 3.0

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 once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.

It's all part of the master plan

Can there be anything more poignant and destabilising than to read the intense parting words (in the form of a poem, though) of someone we adore so much. Death can be such a great shock to the bereaved. Hats off to the poet. I quote some of the lines: When I am dead my dearest / Sing no sad songs for me.

This isn’t by Christina Rossetti though influenced by her. Rhythm hobbles a bit and some of the phrasing is awkward. Not a bad poem, people obviously find it comforting but not in same league as ‘when I am dead’ though there is something typically ‘off’ in Rossetti’s position, something lugubrious, in that poem.

I can't find anything about that Robyn Rancman on the Internet. Where does this information come from (if I may ask) that this " Let Me Go" poem is authored by Robyn Rancman? And by the way, did you know that this Poem Hunter site is not considered a reliable (for authorship of poems) resource by (at least) Wikipedia? Any reference to a reliable resource where the information can be found who in reality wrote this poem would be very greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.

Miss Me, But Let Me Go Robyn Rancman ................ For this a journey 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 of heart, go to the friends we know, And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, miss me, but let me go. P.S. It looks like Christina Georgina Rossetti plagiarized.
