WHEN I AM GONE
When I am gone beyond this world of turmoil and strife,
I hope there will be a part of me remaining in your life.
I hope you will remember me for what I tried to do,
For the love within my heart, that all belongs to you.
For every song we ever sang and every joy we shared,
And for the tears we might have known but luckily were spared.
I hope you will forget the words I did not mean to say,
And that I ever made you sad or kept the sun away.
In brief, I hope your only thoughts will be ones that bless,
Your loving heart with memories of golden happiness.
No service by request.
