Let Me Go

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 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
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.


I know.

It’s how we all feel. The problem is we never can let go of our sadness because we have lost a partner.

It is a very hard lesson to learn, and there are no answers. But I hope you will find some consolation in the notion that you are not alone here.

I know we are all going through the same heartaches and emotions, but I just feel I’m on my own.
As often as I read these words, the tears fall. There’s not a day that’s gone by that I’ve not cried.
Crying now as I write and wonder when will they stop and when will things get easier . I just can’t believe that Alan has left me and I wont see him again. I miss him so much, I want to hear his voice telling me that he loves me. How on earth do we mend a broken heart?

I included this in my Dad’s funeral service <3

Just so heart wrenching, and the pain gets worse with each new day.

So beautiful sad 2. Why don’t you publish a collection of your bereavement poems. I am sure it will help you forward.

Thank you Angiejo.
I thought it would get easier reading through the poems, but at the moment it just makes me cry even more. Maybe one day it will be easier.


Just try to stay clear of anything that makes your situation worse. You can always go back later when you feel better. Don’t force yourself forward. It comes slowly …minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day.

All my days are full of sad memories at the moment, and I still can’t believe that he’s gone. I miss him so much. I’ve never felt grief this bad before.

Sadly I expect almost everyone on this site would agree with your sentance


It’s just been 7 weeks for me, but it just feels like a never ending heartache.
