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 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.
At the rising of the sun
and its going down,
At the blowing of the wind
and in the chill of winter,
In the opening of the buds
and in the rebirth of the spring,
At the blueness of the skies
and in the warmth of summer,
At the rustling of the leaves
and the beauty of autumn,
As long as you live, I too will live;
for I am now a part of you,
As you remember me.
