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've fought some hard battles
and won, ere the close of the day.
Then forget to greive for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But, in summerjust 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 the best.
