When I am gone,
I hope you think kindly of me.
That there is a memory of us,
That brings a smile …
To your heart.
Remember … these old eyes once,
Contained a spark of life,
With all the joy of the young,
With all the hope ..
Of the loved.
When I am gone,
Remember our laughter,
The tears we shared,
And how our hearts sang,
From our shared whimsical smiles.
Oh when I am long resting in peace,
Put down the words for all to read.
To share once again,
This day and next,
My prayer and smile for all of you.
