    Irene Jeanette Smith-Fortney

    "Release me,
    let me go.
    I have so Many things to see and do.
    You must not 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,
    But now it is time I traveled on alone.
    So grieve awhile for me,
    if grieve you must
    then let your grief be comforted by trust.
    It is only for awhile that we must part
    So bless the memories within your heart.
    I wont be far away,
    for life goes on,
    So, if you need me, call and I will come.
    Though you can not see or touch me, I will be near,
    and if you listen with your heart,
    you will hear all my love around you soft and clear.
    And then, when you must come this way alone,
    I will greet you with a smile and say, welcome home."
