Fill not your heart with pain and 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 and grief,
My going has eased my hurt
and given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
Not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you all
And look on with a smile.
Understand in your hearts,
I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love
of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts
of all of you.
