                                                     Remember Me
Fill not your hearts with pain & sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles; I've only gone to rest a while.
Although my leaving causes pain & grief, my going has eased my hurt & given me relief.
So dry your eyes & remember me, not as I am now but as I used to be.
I will remember you all & look on with a smile, understand in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a while.
As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
