Miss Me But Let Me Go

Scene of a Graveyard


When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me,
I want no tears in a gloom filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not too much,
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that once we shared,
Miss me, but let me go.

This is a journey we all must take
and each must take alone;
it’s all part of God’s perfect plan,
a step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
go to the friends we know.
Bury your sorrows in doing good,
Miss me, but let me go.


This is an Edgar A. Guest poem. Born 1881 in Birmingham, England, Edgar came to the US in 1891. Through his light and optimistic poems he soon became popular and came to be known as the “people’s poet”. He hosted a talk show and TV series in the 40’s and 50’s.

    ” MISS ME , BUT LET ME GO ”
    THIS BEAUTIFUL EXPRESSION OF LOVE STATED AS POETRY IS A REAL MONUMENT TO THE AUTHOR
    AND TO THINK THERE ARE FOOLS WHO THINK THAT A STATUE OR A NAME ON A BUILDING IS A MONUMENT. GOD HELP THEM ! !
