Remember (a little while)

Fill not your heart with pain and sorrow,

But remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy, the laughter, the smile.

I’ve only gone to rest for 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 for a little while.
