Jake's Grandaddy "Papaw" Poem

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 too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared.
Miss me – but let me go.
 
For this is a 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.
