Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
But remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little 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.
