- WHEN I’M GONE -
When I come to the end of my journey,And I travel my last weary mile,Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned,And only remember the smile.Forget unkind words I have spoken;Remember some good I have done.Forget that I ever had heartache,And remember I’ve had loads of fun.Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered,And sometimes fell by the way.Remember I have fought some hard battles,And won, ere the close of the day.Then forget to grieve for my going,I would not have you sad for a day.But in summer just gather some flowers,And remember the place where I lay.And come in the shade of evening,When the sun paints the sky in the west.Stand for a few moments beside me,And remember only my best.
